    Do you have any idea what a system like this might cost? I see this as a great way for people that don’t have access to pasture for rent, they can rent old/unused cropground that doesn’t currently have fences on it. If this can be adapted to goats, it would allow somebody to reclaim old pastures or cropground that is all grown up now, without the expense of goat-tight fences!!! This could possibly bring a ridiculous amount of empty-mostly worthless land in Southern Ohio back into pasture production. Yes, we can feed the world with grazing animals, no matter what the “experts” say!!! This device would make that a very real possiblity
