Cyber cows: Hi-Line rancher wins grant to test virtual cattle fence
Much like an invisible dog fence can keep canines corralled in the yard, a northern Montana cattle rancher is looking forward to experimenting with virtual fences.
“It’s really expensive, super expensive,” said Leo Barthelmess, a Malta-area rancher. “But somebody has to start it. And the more that are produced in the market, the cheaper it gets.”
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Partners for Fish and Wildlife program was recently awarded a $152,600 grant to help fund a demonstration project for the virtual fencing on Barthelmess’ ranch.
