I have been visiting relatives in Norway and they have a fantastic solution to the goat fence problem. They are using a product called No Fence. I got to see it in action this trip. It actually keeps the goats is a small area next to the house. No coming into the yard and eating all her flowers like they used to. I was surprised to hear that it works so well. They also use it for their dairy cattle and their sheep. They can locate all the animals on the mountain and actually use it to bring them home in the fall, by moving the boundaries. It give an alert if an animal is not moving or goes out of the area (they said they have not had a problem with it holding any animal). She can actually program it to make a small alleyway for moving them around the farm. I really want one now! Then there is no excuse for not getting goats!
They have to wear a GPS collar. If they get close to the boundary, it emits a sound, if they get too close it progresses to a different sound, then a shock. My cousin said they learn very fast and it requires little training. I’m thinking not so on horses, because they’d probably panic and run through it, but he said they haven’t had that issue with any of their animals yet.
Would work great for someone with a brush eating business.
