    Description

    During June and August 1992, a new technology designed to exclude cattle from specific areas such as riparian zones was tested. The technology consisted of an eartag worn by an animal that provides an audio warning and electrical impulse to the ear as the animal approaches the zone of influence of a transmitter. The transmitter emits a signal that narrowly defines the desired area of exclusion. Tests on cattle indicated that the technology is about 90 percent effective at excluding animals.
