About Nofence
Managing livestock has always been a challenge.

Humanity has tried everything from herding with dogs to walling the animals in with barbed wire, electric, and wooden fences, but these are costly and time-consuming solutions and often in conflict with the local wildlife.
It has also left vast areas of potential pasture overgrown and underutilized.

Until now.

Enter virtual fences.

Nofence began in a small Norwegian town named Batnfjordsøra, many years ago when our Founder and CTO, Oscar Hovde, set about making his idea of virtual fencing for livestock a reality.
As the idea grew, so did the interest; the man with a plan soon became people with a purpose.

And with the help of our customers—whose input, innovation, and patience continue to be an integral part of our product development—Oscar's idea blossomed.
Today, we are a team of ambitious and international professionals with a set of shared goals:
to support livestock farmers, improve animal welfare, and restore the fertility of our soil. Curious about how it works? Find out more here.
