Default Types of herding styles

I was reading about Beaucerons and found this:
Yes the Beauceron is a shepherd, but not a gatherer. Folks who purchase a Beauceron and expect the dog to gather sheep like a Border Collie will be very disappointed. The Beauceron is a Continental herder, and must be trained to perform herding chores. The Beauceron will not go out naturally and herd sheep around a pen. The Beauceron has an affinity for stock, but will not gather stock or balance a flock/herd instinctively.
I also remember Old English Sheep dogs are drovers, yes?

So... I am interested in what breeds herd, or did, in what styles and in addition to reading google I figured I would ask here as well.

Do herding trials only ask for gathering techniques?
