About us

The people at Nofence work to develop technology that makes it easier to graze animals on pasture, while at the same time maintaining animal welfare.

Who we are

Ever since the domestication of animals, man has tried to control and limit their motion range from manual herding to building fences. Fences require considerable maintenance and construction is driven by high cost. This material- and time consuming process has left vast areas with potential pastures overgrown and untouched. What if we could utilize this natural resource for future food production? Let nature decide where our animals can graze?

We started more than ten years ago as a group of farmers and engineers, bringing modern technology and traditional farming together. What we created is the world’s fist virtual fence system for grazing animals, improving agriculture and the environment all at once.
