There are many different types of agricultural fencing, depending on stock and livestock requirements that you have.
Field boundaries and paddocks must be secure for the protection of livestock and surrounding areas. As agricultural and equine fencing contractors, we cater for a full range fencing.
Agricultural Stock Fencing
Stock fencing or wire fencing can be installed using high tensile netted wire. The wire strains tighter than mild steel wire and requires no tightening regularly.
We support the wire with eight-foot strainers; eight to ten inches in diameter every 50 meters and six-foot posts, three to four inches in diameter every three to four meters.
We drive posts into the ground 1200mm and 600mm deep, respectively. We use state of the art; self-propelled post driver fitted with a 750 kg weight making it easier to drive the posts into the hardest of ground.
Depending on the length of the run, the stock netting is strained using a “Quick Fencer” or chain walkers. We build box joints and use high tensile wire to support the strainers. Either method ensures that the stock fencing is very tight, giving better security for any livestock and minimal maintenance. Stock fencing can have either barbed wire or high tensile wire above it providing extra protection for livestock.
All fencing posts have a fifteen-year guarantee against rot. At an extra cost, we can supply creosoted posts which have an extensive lifespan.
Post and Rail Fencing
Post and rail fencing is very popular and used in many situations as it is both aesthetically pleasing and extremely secure. We recommend at least three rails but can fit as few as two, or up to five.
Posts are typically spaced at 1.8 meters apart and are 1.8 long. They are driven into the ground using a post hole driver 600mm into the ground. We do not use concrete as this affects the life of the fence post.
A fence of this type will typically last fifteen years plus, depending on the materials used. We can supply creosoted posts that will last up to thirty years. Stock fencing and rabbit wire can be incorporated if required.
As agricultural fencing Contractors, we can install post and rail fencing on long or short runs at competitive prices.
Equine Netting for Horses
Specially designed for horses, equine netting is very similar to stock fencing. However, the spaces in the wire are small enough to ensure that horses do not get their hoofs trapped in the fence. The wire has no sharp edges to hurt any horse or pony. Equine netting made from high tensile steel will provide a long period of durability and very little maintenance.
Installing equine netting for horses is done in the same way as stock fencing with intermediate posts four meters apart. A single rail above the wire netting can installed for extra safety if required.
Featheredge fencing typically used in domestic situations and areas that require privacy. The height varies depending on the privacy required but typically 1.8m high.
We can supply and install wooden or galvanised metal gates for arable fields, paddocks and equestrian areas. Kissing gates can be supplied and installed for public footpaths.
