During the last four or five years, a number of electric fences have been brought into use in the higher rainfall areas. These are playing a very important role in increasing production and almost without exception, improvement in output has been reported following their introduction. During 1954, ten sets were used for demonstration purposes throughout the dairying districts under the terms of the Commonwealth Dairy Extension Grant. These demonstrations have all been successful and leave little doubt as to the effectiveness of this type of grazing management.
