Agersens is developing a collar and phone app enabling farmers to fence, move or monitor their livestock using their smartphone.
Agersens is a tech startup developing a fenceless farming system for grazing livestock including dairy cows, beef cattle, sheep and other animals. Agersens has negotiated a worldwide exclusive licence to CSIRO intellectual property that trains an animal to stay or move within a virtual fence boundary. A farmer can create any number of moveable virtual fences using their smartphone or tablet. The system will enable farmers to automate the movement and control of their livestock – improving farm productivity through automated moving grazing fronts, improved health and welfare of livestock, and cutting labour cost. A farmer sipping a latte in NYC could move their cattle from one paddock to another in Australia with a touch of their iPhone.
