Fences and gates

Farms & Farm Machinery - - Tips&tricks -

• Fences de­fine the prop­erty bound­aries and re­strict ac­cess to the prop­erty. Reg­u­larly check the con­di­tion of bound­ary fences and gates. Pay at­ten­tion to slack wiring and in­ves­ti­gate the cause. Re­pair dam­aged fences as soon as pos­si­ble. Con­tact the po­lice if the fences ap­pear to have been de­lib­er­ately cut or tam­pered with. • Mount gates at en­trances to the prop­erty and other high-risk ar­eas se­curely to

strong posts, and lock with heavy-duty chains and pad­locks when not in use. • Gates should be en­graved or per­ma­nently marked with a piece of in­for­ma­tion that

is unique to you.

• Fenc­ing ma­te­ri­als should be se­curely locked away when not in use.
