Exclusion fencing is a type of barrier designed to prevent animals from accessing a certain area.
Exclusion fencing is commonly used in conservation efforts to protect native wildlife from introduced or feral animals, such as foxes, wild dogs and feral pigs. These introduced species can have a devastating impact on local ecosystems, and exclusion fencing can be an effective way to prevent them from accessing sensitive areas.
In agricultural settings, exclusion fencing is often used to keep livestock from accessing certain areas, such as crops or sensitive ecosystems. This can help to reduce damage to crops and protect important habitats.
Well-designed and constructed fences are essential infrastructure on any property … and are especially important when it comes to exclusion fencing.
Increased competition (grazing pressure) from feral animals is one of the primary reasons for the development of the Westonfence™ system.
A Westonfence™ fence is constructed using materials that are strong and durable, and can vary in height depending on the size of the animals that are being kept out.
The versatility of the Westonfence™ system means installations can be customised to suit your requirements and the invasive species you need to exclude.
Our range of exclusion fences have evolved through experience and understanding of animal behaviour.
Westonfence™ has a range of options available for securing your external perimeter. Our 8-Line fence is suitable as a general exclusion fence or our D10 boundary is suitable for excluding specific invasive species such as kangaroos and wild dogs.
The key to excluding animals using the Westonfence™ system is ensuring the animals encounter power through touch and learn to respect it.
Fences including 8-Line (kangaroo control) and D9 XL (wild deer and kangaroo control) have height that deters animals from jumping. When they can’t jump they’ll try and go through which is when they receive a shock and learn to “respect” the fence.
It’s important to note that most kangaroo pressure will be down low or under the fence.
Westonfence™ has also added the Exclusion Post 1650mm high dropper to our range for additional height and tighter wire spacings. This fence is a total exclusion solution.
Leaning offsets are another common form of exclusion fencing. Leaning offsets can be retrofitted to existing conventional fences to electrify easily.
Overall, exclusion fencing can be a useful tool in a variety of settings where it is necessary to keep animals out of a specific area to protect wildlife, crops or other resources.
The Westonfence™ system is adaptable to suit your specific enterprise depending on what you’re trying to exclude.
