Fence building

Began to build a fence around a small grazing pasture of approximately 1250 sq m. for the animals. A managed intensive rotational grazing (MIRG) system is planned. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Managed_intensive_rotational_grazing.

As skudde sheep will be the choice of breed which will be grazing the pastures, a fence at least 160 cm. high will be required (skuddes can jump quite high!).  A galvanized mesh fence or galvanized cage fence is used. The type of fence chosen has small openings at the bottom (Width x Height x).

Later on a so called “Benjeshecken” or dead hedge  will be used to enclose the various pastures or gardens. See: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benjeshecke or http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dead_hedge .
