    Abstract

    The use of remote sensing technology enables quantitative measurements of sheep and their behaviour to be obtained throughout day and night. These measurements can be obtained without the need for a human presence. Proxin1ity loggers have also been used to measure contact levels between cows and calves (Swain and BishopHurley 2007). The loggers use an ultra high frequency (UHF) transceiver that transmits a unique code. They also receive and log signals frotn other units within a predetermined distance (Broster et a/20 12).
