Committed to a sustainable future
Supporting landholders to care for the land through improved pasture management and environmental conservation with help from Gallagher Permanent and Portable Electric Fencing solutions.
For over 50 years, we have been committed to supporting Australian farmers by providing farm-fit solutions to help simplify the challenges faced by those working on the land.
We recognise that our simple to install, yet effective electric fencing solutions increasingly assist landholders to achieve not only more productive and profitable farming systems but help make them more sustainable as well.
Following the success of the 2021 grants, and our continuing support of projects aligned with priority areas of conservation, grazing management and feral animal exclusion, Gallagher and Landcare Australia are proud to offer the 2022 Gallagher Landcare Electric Fencing Grants.

Installing electric conservation fencing can help exclude threats to valuable native plants and animals, such as: Browsing or trampling by herbivores (such as stock, rabbits or kangaroos); preventing damage from people; keeping out introduced pests.
Farm dam restoration
Restoring degraded farm dams into ecological assets by excluding or restricting livestock access can have significant benefits, including livestock health, improved drought resilience, water quality, biodiversity and ecological benefits by allowing native vegetation to establish and regenerate, reducing sedimentation and acting as a natural filter.
