From August 15, 2020 to August 31, 2020, the authors conducted 24 UAV herding experiments on cattle, sheep, and donkey at Hadatu Ranch in Hulunbuir of China. The experimental process was recorded from the aerial UAV view and the ground mobile phone view, respectively, to obtain the experimental dataset of UAV grazing livestock in Hulunbuir of China. The dataset includes: (1) geolocation data of the experiments; (2) the experimental data recorded from the ground mobile phone; (3) the experimental data recorded from aerial UAV view. The dataset is archived in .shp, .mp4 and .mov data formats, and consists of 47 data files with data size of 7.49 GB (Compressed to 14 files with 7.48 GB).
