Proof-of-concept research using commercial, as well as custom designed systems have demonstrated that virtual fencing can successfully hold aswell as move livestock over the landscape.

Preliminary results from reseeding degraded Dera Ghazi Khan rangeland to improve small ruminant production in Pakistan
Characterising the Spatial and Temporal Activities of Free-Ranging Cows from GPS Data
Overall, travel by cows increased post-weaning with subtle within-day behavioural changes, suggesting the biological importance of spatio-temporal behaviour to optimise cattle and landscape management goals.
Spatiotemporal Cattle Data—A Plea for Protocol Standardization
It was not until the end of the 1990’s that animal born satellite receivers catapulted range cattle ecology into the 21st century world of microchip technology with all of its opportunities and…

MANAGING STOCKING DENSITY IN REAL-TIME
Proof-of-concept was established using a cow wearing a neck saddle prototype without producing undue stress as determined using heart rate measurements, and programming the VB to move or surround individual animals allows dispersal or gathering of animals autonomously.
Increasing Shrub Use by Livestock in a World with Less Grass
Strategies and mechanisms are needed to safely enhance shrub use by ruminants in order to capitalize on a presently underutilized forage resource, and new technologies such as biochemical markers of shrub intake need to continue to be identified and developed.
