Vence Field Test #2 Starts

After a busy three day preparation the second Vence prototype development field trip started. We are at a new ranch in Negoles, Arizona, USA for this work. Our tests will look into both individual and group level behavioral responses to stimulation. In the first day of this nine day trip we tested our brand new cattle collar containing our sensor package and stimulation system.
