This is a lightweight, mild steel stock fence, a great way of saving money when used for fencing in your livestock. Mild steel does not need to be strained as tightly as the high tensile stock fencing and gradual turns can be made off intermediate posts. This is particularly useful if you need to make a lot of turns in your fence.

A straining post is required at every major change in direction or any termination and should be supported by a strut or box assembly. Netting should be tied off on the straining posts by hand or with suitable joiners. When tensioning the fence the ‘crimp’ in the net should be reduced by approx: 50%. Avoid driving staples tight against the wire as this will damage the galvanised coating. Two strands of barbed wire or a single electrified wire can be added to the top of the fence.
