    Barking drones in New Zealand to help herd sheep: much cheaper than Border Collies

    Farmers use drones fitted with a speaker and play pre-recorded sounds such as the bark of a dog, or a siren or anything else that might persuade livestock to move

    Farmers in New Zealand have found a new way to herd their sheep. They are now herding sheep with a drone, the DJ1 Mavic 2 Enterprise, outfitted with a speaker that barks like a dog. The farmers say that a single drone can do the work of multiple dogs. Check out the video below for the drone in action and some of the other sounds effects the farmers use.
