Britain Today: Cow watching.

A HERD of cows will have their every moo-ve monitored by satellite during a unique conservation experiment.

The blue grey and beef shorthorn cows are being fitted with electronic collars containing a Global Positioning System (GPS) in a pilot scheme to help preserve rare vegetation.

The equipment - which is more commonly used to study wild animals - will be able to pinpoint the exact position of the cattle at any one time. The herd of 50 cows grazes on 200 hectares in the Ingleborough National Nature Reserve in North Yorkshire.
