Pro-active livestock management–Capitalizing on animal behavior [pdf]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
This paper describes a technique for modifying sheep and or goat behavior to reduce canine predation, management time and fencing requirements under mixed-species stocking. Procedures to modify behavior of individual animals are outlined. The concept involves bonding small ruminants to cattle to produce a cohesive group termed a flerd. A flerd acts as a single interdependent cohesive livestock unit under free-ranging conditions rather than as distinct flocks and herds coexisting in the same area.
