Abstract

The need to fence for efficient livestock control was recognised early in the history of the pastoral industry in Western Australia. Fence design, materials and layout have all undergone many changes since the 1880s. Modern fences have 4 or 5 strands of high tensile light gauge wires with post spacings up to 50m, and strains up to 4000m. These modern fences contain less material and are faster to erect than traditional fences, yet they provide an equally good, if not superior, barrier. The happy coincidence of strength and cost effectiveness will be apparent through this manual.
