The number & size of grazing areas.
It is important to ensure that pasture sections are able to rest and re-grow.
The length of grazing time.
The more regular the rotation, preferably every few days, means the more time the pasture spends growing rather than being grazed.
Number of animals on each grazing area.
Stocking density determines how efficiently the allocated area is grazed.
Permanent electric fences are low-cost compared with conventional non-electric fence, and longer lasting. Permanent fences use highly conductive, corrosion resistant fence wire, together with wood, steel, fibreglass or Gallagher Insulated Line Posts, coupled with components to keep fences looking good and working effectively for a lifetime.
Fencing layout should be designed to make stock movements easy, and to enable further subdivision using portable fencing, meaning better animal control overall.
Laneways and gateways make stock movements to the next grazing area straightforward, which also results in improved animal welfare outcomes.
Portable electric fences are easy to transport, assemble and take down, allowing for total within a permanent electric fence system, or within a traditional, non-electrified fence system using portable energizer power.
Ring Top or Pigtail posts are a popular option for dairy and cattle portable fencing. Multiwire come with the option to secure wire at different heights so they can be used for all other animals.
Reels hold the tape, braid or wire for the portable fence. You can use just one reel for single line fences or up to four reels, attached to a reel stand, for multiwire fences.
Tapes, Wires and Braids are used on portable fences, rather than galvanised wire used on permanent fences. Gallagher conductors are ideal for portable electric fences as they are light, visible and easy to wind.
