Nofence is a Norwegian company founded with the vision of replacing physical fences with virtual fences for sheep, goats and cattle. As the concept grew, so did the interest, and the dream of virtual enclosure transformed into a mission: to get animals out to pasture where they belong.
Nofence was invented and patented by company founder Oscar Hovde in 2011, comprising of a collar that the animals carry around their neck. Farmers draw a virtual fence in their app and as the animal approaches this virtual fence, a sound signal indicates that the animal is approaching a boundary. Customer feedback, innovation and patience was, and continues to be, an integral part of the product development.
Today, Nofence is a team of international professionals with a shared set of goals: to support farmers, improve animal welfare, and restore soil fertility and biodiversity.
The company has its largest office in Molde, with additional offices in Oslo, Trondheim, UK, Spain and the US. Currently the company has about 60 employees, mainly based in Norway.
