Electric fencing in the west Kimberley environment.

West Kimberley Soil Conservation District Advisory Committee Derby, Western Australia

Produced under the auspices of the West Kimberley Soil Conservation District Committee, Derby.


Electric fence evaluation by both pastoral industry and the W.A.D.A. has highlighted some of the practical do's and don'ts of this technology. A summary of these practicalities is compiled here as a guide to those considering electric fencing in the Kimberley environment. The fence design adopted here is the result of technical evolution over a number of years (and a lot of trial and error). Other designs and construction techniques have been used with varying degrees of success.
