Installing stock and equestrian fencing on your farm can be time-consuming and frustrating. Because agricultural fencing is e correctly to keep it intact. Even paddocks and metal fencing require precision to ensure adequate livestock security and safety.
Depending on the type, design, location and area size of the agricultural fencing, support posts should be planted every 3-4 metres and driven deep into the ground to a depth of between 600mm and 1200mm. In addition, 8-10 foot strainers should be positioned every 50m.
Our experienced fencing installation specialists have the know-how and the tools to ensure the support posts are spaced accurately and driven into the ground to a depth that will secure the perimeter of your property. When stock fencing is installed correctly, minimal maintenance is required.
Wire and stock fencing is strong, visible, durable and easy to install. This also makes it pocket-friendly for keeping farmyard animals such as pigs, sheep, cattle horses and deer.
Wood has consistently been the material of choice for the majority of agricultural fencing projects over the years. Plywood is by far the most cost-effective wood and performs the same task as most other types of wood fencing. Hardwood trees have a healthy lifespan. When treated, you should expect a plywood fencing installation to survive for around 15-20 years.
By far the hardest fencing to work with, barbed wire installations require experience and the right equipment. Because this type of fencing can cause damage to some animals, it deters cattle from attempting to pass through fencing so positioning know-how is important.
The steel wire composition in high tensile fencing is stronger and able to take more tension. This makes high tensile fencing an ideal option for farmers that keep animals with a tendency to lean against the fence or use it to scratch their behind. Although this type of agricultural stock and equestrian fencing is more expensive than smooth wire, it’s more durable and lasts longer and requires less maintenance.
Electric fencing gives you gentle force that keeps livestock away from fences and deters humans from trying to get into your fields. This type of fencing is not too expensive but because it requires a fence charger does require experience and knowledge to install.
Equine netting is specifically designed with small spaces between the wires to prevent horses from trapping their hooves in the fencing. The netting is made from high tensile steel to give it more tension and durability so requires little maintenance.
Agricultural stock and equestrian fencing require specialist knowledge and the right tools to ensure the installation is erected properly. Without the correct equipment or knowledge, erecting fences around your farm can also be extremely time-consuming. Poorly installed fencing will be less effective and more likely to require ongoing maintenance.
