Quality is an essential ingredient in everything we do. This is why we only source our wire and metal work from leading industry names such as X™ Fence®, Tornado, Gripple and Hotline. All of our timber comes from sustainable sources and is available with standard, UC4 treated for a 15 year life, creosote treated and 30 year pressure treatments.

All fences are installed using our own machinery including specialist award-winning Pro Fencer mechanical wire dispenser and tightener. Our post driving machines, including the award-winning Bryce HD180 low ground pressure Tracked Post Driver, are all available to hire on a day rate if you already have your own posts and materials.

Types of cattle fencing include:

Stock netting/stock fencing

Stock Netting Fencing With Wooden PostsOur stock netting fences consist of treated timber posts driven in to the ground and then clad with stock netting/mesh manufactured to BSEN10223-5 standards and galvanised to BSEN10244. The high tensile mesh we use is manufactured from flexible and resilient high tensile wire giving you a stronger, more secure fence. Additional options include one or two strands of barbed wire at the top of the fence.

Post and rail fencing

Post and Rail Fencing CheshireWe supply and install a variety of post and rail fences to many different specifications using half round, round or square timber posts driven in to the ground and then clad with half round or flat rails. Additional options include installing a strand of barbed wire across the top of the fence or cladding the fence with stock netting.

Electric fences

Electric Fencing Post and Wire in FieldThere is a variety of different electric fencing solutions designed for cattle, including New Zealand System fencing (consisting of treated timber posts driven in to the ground and clad with plain high tensile wire that is electrified) and temporary systems such as plastic posts and a single or multiple strands of stranded or poly wire that is then electrified.

Barbed wire fences

Barbed Wire Fence in field CheshireAnother fencing method to contain cattle is using tensile barbed wire manufactured to BSEN10223-5 and galvanised to BSEN10244 clad to treated timber posts driven in to the ground. This can be a more cost effective method over large areas.

Clipex fences
