Fencing Tips Booklet Proving Popular

Fencing Tips Booklet Proving Popular

Wiremark’s® fencing tips booklet Fencing the Proven Way is proving to be a big hit, with over 900 copies requested since its launch at the Mystery Creek Fieldays in June.

The booklet, which provides practical advice on all aspects of fence construction, has received positive feedback from farmers, contractors, associations and technical institutions.

Isabelle Affleck, Resource Manager for Agribusiness Training Limited in Invercargill, says the booklet is a great learning tool and a valuable resource that has been made available to their students.

“Fencing the proven Way is a resource that our students are able to access and take away from our courses. The techniques demonstrated are all examples of best industry standards,” says Isabelle.

Donna Mackay, marketing assistant for Wiremark®, says that it is great to see such positive feedback on the booklet, especially from farmers and lifestyle farmers.

“Some of the booklets are even going as far as Germany, where one woman requested a copy for her son working in a vineyard and farming, while other farmers and lifestyle block owners have requested them to help with fencing on their property or to brush up on their skills.

“This booklet is handy for those who are new to fencing, or even those fencers who think they know everything there is to know. The advice and insights that this booklet offers are really practical and the added diagrams make it that bit easier to follow what has been said,” she says.

Fencing the Proven Way was first published in the 1980s, and has been reworked to include new sections such as constructing a horizontal end assembly and an electric fence.

It also includes advice on choosing the right materials, tensioning, knot tying and repairing fences, which has been well received by lifestyle farmers.

Wiremark® has also received positive feedback from the Small Land Owners Association in Kumeu. Members have found the booklet to be a fantastic resource for practical advice on managing and maintaining their properties.
