Yes, absolutely. There are other systems so that animals can be given small electric shocks (based on GPS data) so that they can be kept on a patch of grazing without the need to build and move expensive fences. This may seem cruel but the animals can learn to avoid this by providing some sort of recognisable boundary. It is no worse than an electric fence and very simple to construct and move about.
