Cattle herd dynamics

The animation shows the positions of individual GPS-collared cattle in the CarniForeGraze project grazing throughout the summer of 2021. Two cattle herds are present, divided by the blue/purple colors and the green/yellow colors. Interestingly the video shows that the herds are not staying together, although they do mix every now and then. With the use of this data we can study cattle herd dynamics and study how individuals are staying together. We can also study how the presence of multiple herds (i.e. social pressure) affect those dynamics.
