At Metalcorp, we understand that one of the most labour intensive tasks on a farm is fencing; whether that be replacing old fencing with new or repairing damage to fencing after the affects of floods or fires. Whatever the case a farmer’s main priority, will no doubt be to build a quality fence that is both economical and easy to install.
Well-designed and constructed fences are essential infrastructure on any rural property, as quality fencing can control livestock and reduce straying stock, which can be a danger to themselves and passing motorists.

First and foremost you must decide between an electric and a conventional fence. The most appropriate option will depend on a number of factors such as the type of animal, the type of fence (internal or boundary) and the location of the fence.
