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.
One of many 7-inch bore stem posts for this wild dog fence. I had to take a photo at this particular spot because it was some of the hardest ground I’d had to drive one of these fence posts into. But they all go in eventually if you hit them enough times.
In the evening light we do final preparations for a new cluster fencing project in South West Queensland. Wild dogs continue to be a big problem for graziers but an added problem is kangaroos. They are in plague proportions in many areas and eat valuable stock feed. Controlled culling is not enough, and cluster fencing projects like this one are addressing the issue head on.
Fencing wire has arrived ready for me to roll out. But there’s a lot of work to get done before I get to the wire on my section of the wild dog fence in this cluster fencing project in South West Queensland.
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.
