Abstract [en]

To fence in pastures for sheep today is a major cost, especially because of the time required when using current methods. What takes most time is starting to fence off a new area, but to maintain a fence is also a continuous effort. The main function is to keep the sheep at the field.! !

By interviewing and observing sheep farmers on how they work with fence today and what their problems was, I got a better understanding of the problem. Also looking at a number of other things like the context, statistics on sheep farming, laws and competition mapping gave a wider image. But the most important part in my research occurred when I talked to experts about sheep behavior. The main characteristic is the flocking behavior which the final result is based on. !

By stressing a sheep with a sound as it is on its way out of the given area the sheep will, cos of flocking behavior, stop and move back to the other sheep.
