The fencing system on the whole property was replaced and rebuilt between 1982 and 2003. The posts are spaced out about 4 m and 9 wires are used to enable to contain all types of animals. The system is goat proof, an absolute must to do weed control in a natural way with the help of goats. Boundary fences have a barbed wire on the bottom to stop the wild pigs to root along the fences. The top wire is mostly electrified in case of emergencies. It is possible to immediately erect an electric fence anywhere on the property. Only a stretch of 200 m of about 15 km of fencing is still old and in weak condition.
|This picture shows the type of internal fence of the property
with posts, wires and battens. The top wire id mostly electrified and the bottom wire
is barbed because of wild pigs penetrating the farm area.
In the middle you can see the Kauri trees growing out of the boulder valley.
|The background shows the division of the property into the bush and the grazing area. The lines are carefully built around the rocks, so that feral goats cannot jump in, or domestic goats are not able to leave by climbing over the rocks.|
|There are two yards on the property. This picture shows
the loading ramp and the holding pens where animals can be kept before loading. The ramp
has a double story facility to load the upper level of a truck.
The other yard is in front of the cowshed.
