Abstract

In Western Australian wheatbelt farming areas, cereal growing and stock grazing occur together; these two activities cannot go together without fencing, and the average farm may have 15 to 25 miles of internal fencing if it is adequately fenced. Usually these fences are not planned with any relation to the slopes or natural features. Farms are divided into many sections by a large mileage of natural features, such as creeks, gullies, rocky ridges and salty land, and also by a large mileage of fencing.
