Wire is waiting

These coils of Waratah Stockgrip are lined up, waiting. I’ll get to them soon!

Sunset on the fence line

I seem to take plenty of sunset and sunrise photos, might have something to do with early starts and late finishes on the fence line. Either way, it’s always a pretty good start and end to the day and I don’t think you can beat an outback sunset or sunrise.

Getting ready for the next run

Looking forward to getting stuck into the next section – looks like a smooth run thanks to our top grader operators. The better the preparation, the easier the fencing job. Love these long straight runs.

The end

Was great to finish off another long run at the end of the day. A few challenges in this exclusion fence with sandhills and deep gutters on the harder ridges. Not to mention numerous frosty starts. But winter days in the Queensland outback are pretty good going, wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.

Camp oven fence cut-out

Decided to treat the team after finishing a long run of exclusion fence with a camp oven cut-out. One of the best parts about working in the Australian outback is the lifestyle. Doesn’t get much better than this.

Dust storm

Not the best day for fencing in southwest Queensland. Okay in the Cruiser cab though! It wasn’t the worst dust storm I’ve seen but I still decided to stay close to the shed and do maintenance for most of the day.

Big Boy wire wagon

This is my Big Boy wire wagon. It makes the fencing job a whole lot quicker with these 300 kilogram rolls of Waratah pre-fab wire. Still on the wild dog fence in South West Queensland and enjoying being back in my old stomping ground.  How about those big skies!

Gates are up

I managed to get these double gates swung before dark.

fencing equipment

Fencing machinery

Everyone likes to look at a bit of fencing machinery and equipment don’t they? Even if it is covered in a bit of red dust.

Dust storms on the fence line

We’re getting our fair share of dust storms on the fence line. You can see them coming and once they hit visibility is a little challenging. Looks like these gates are going to have to wait for tomorrow.

Fencing progress

The fencing material stockpile at this base camp is nearly done. Am a fair few kilometres into this fence but I haven’t scratched the surface yet. Being a man of few words I’m not one for writing long blog posts but I hope you are enjoying my outback fencing photos.

JTL rural fencing

Straight lines

Neat and straight. Just how I like it to be with JTL Rural Fencing fences.

overlay fence, wild dog fencing

Overlay exclusion fence

An overlay exclusion fence utilising the existing boundary fence. If you have a boundary fence in good order but need to keep the wild dogs out, an overlay is a good option. You use less posts and the fence has added strength.

Livestock sheep boundary

If you have a mixed farm with sheep and stock, it’s important to have a strong (and straight!) boundary fence.
