The Product

Throughout our history we’ve been known to develop award-winning solutions, and now we’re launching the next.

Our technology provides real-time data and 24/7 visibility of livestock, increasing productivity and profitability, improving animal health outcomes, and offering a cost-effective solution for environmental compliance and sustainable practices.  eShepherd™ is a solar powered, GPS enabled, livestock neckband that enables you to simply draw your virtual fence anywhere on your property and your cattle learn to move with and remain within the virtual barrier.
