Abstract

The sub-division of pastoral leases with fences promotes better control of the grazing animal, reduces mustering costs, and simplifies the imposition of management strategies designed to lift the productivity of pastures and stock.

However, fencing represents a considerable capital investment and a commitment to fence maintenance.

The adoption of good construction techniques gives the best result for the dollar spent and reduces maintenance requirements in following years.

This Bulletin highlights some of the more important construction aspects for barbed wire fences.
