Our cattle fencing includes:

  • Barbed Wire:

This can also be used as a perimeter fence around an area but has little security advantages. A cattle fence usually consists of 5 strands barbed wire, either single or double strands. Strands varies from the application eg. cattle, sheep or goats. Barbed wire cattle fences are known as a barrier to fence livestock animals in.

  • Field Fences:

Fieldfence is a woven fence and consists of a number of horizontal and vertical smooth wire strands. Spacing of the wire generally gets wider as the fence gets higher. The blocks ensure that small animals are kept in or out. Different heights and block sizes are available depending on the application e.g. sheep, goats and cattle.

Game Fence The height of the fence on a game ranch depends on the type of animals kept. Game can be grouped into various categories on the basis of their potential to move over, under or through the fences. It should, however, be noted that most animals will only resort to crossing fences when they are under some kind of stress or duress. The following fence-crossing groups can be distinguished:

  • Animals that jump over fence: Kudu, Impala, Mountain Reedbuck, Grey Rhebok, Eland and Waterbuck.
  • Animals that crawl underneath or through fences: Ungulates like Warthog, Bushpig, Duiker, Steenbok, Klipspringer, Gemsbok, Springbok, Sable, Antelope, Red Hartebeest and Tsesebe, and predators such as Jackals, Caracal, Cheetah, Leopard and Lion.
  • Animals that break fences: Buffalo, White and Black Rhino, Giraffe and Waterbuck, and also Eland, Blue Wildebeest and Sable, Antelope, bulls
  • Animals that usually do not jump over fences: Springbok, Blesbok, Steenbok, Duiker and Oribi
