Fencing out pests, rather than fencing in productive animals may be a different way of thinking for some farmers.
The traditional approach to fencing has been containment, but a growing number of farmers, frustrated by stock losses or reduced grazing capacity, are turning to exclusion, or feral fencing. Whether it's lambs lost to wild dogs or pigs, or pasture and crops lost to hungry kangaroos, feral animals can have a significant impact on the bottom line.
