Will sheep dogs need to learn how to fly? FARM quality assurance programs could one day specify the use of drones rather than dogs or motorbikes to muster livestock, after research showing mustering with an unmanned aerial vehicle was less stressful for sheep and goats. The video shows how the drone is able to quickly and efficiently herd the sheep. One issue they have discovered is that the drone is unable to lift sheep, so they will still have to involve vehicles for some herding scenarios. So will dogs no longer be used for this task?
