About us

The people at Nofence are an enthusiastic group, working tirelessly to develop technology that makes it easier to graze animals on a pasture while at the same time maintaining animal welfare. This is important not just for our customers, but also for us. There are many positive effects of grazing pastures that are conducive to achieving sustainable agriculture. We are proud to be the first company in the world to develop virtual fencing technology that is already being sold commercially.

Our team

Our employees have a broad range of experience from many different fields, which is important for a leading technology company delivering products to be used on animals. We have started the international expansion of Nofence and are planning rapid growth moving forward.
