New_post_and_batten_fence_finished_in_tauranga.jpgWhat type of Post and Batten Fence do you need?

Ideal for sheep and beef fences. What to think about when looking at a new post and batten fence?

 

 

 

  • What sort of stock do you have on your property? 
  • Is it and internal fence or a boundary fence
  • Does it need to be electrified? If so how many wires

As a general rule of thumb Post and Batten fences are between 7-10 wires, the wire is usually either 2.5mm High Tensile or in some case 4.0mm Soft wire (the good ole #8 wire). Posts used can be full, half or quarter rounds and are generally placed between 3-5 metres apart depending on the contour of the ground. Battens are used to increase the strength of the fence and range between 3-5 battens per post spacing. 

 

Boundry_fence_between_neighbours.jpgLegislation in regards to Boundary Fences

All Information on the rules around what constitutes a proper rural boundary fence falls under the Fencing Act 1978 and can be found on the New Zealand Legislation website under  rural fences. When it comes to securing your stock from getting onto roads or neighbouring property there are also three other pieces of legislation that can affect you. The first is the Impounding Act 1955 it discusses the protection of road users and neighbouring properties from wandering livestock and what can be done if this happens. The second is the Animals Law Reform Act 1989, it talks about the the responsibility of those in charge of stock and the compenstation liability that they may face should they not take"reasonable care" to see that no damaged is caused by there stock straying onto the roads. Finally the Crimes Act 1961 which discusses what you may be criminally liable for if your stock wanders onto the road and you are found deemed to not have taken appropriate steps to secure them.
