  • 2. Farmers, regardless of the size of their properties, face different challenges every day. One of most common difficulties is livestock or poultry theft. The impact can vary from mild to serious. Earlier this year, reports of a farmer who had more than 100 sheep stolen with an estimated value of $20, 000 made headlines and caused concern. Many claim that it was not uncommon in Australia to hear news about hunters, instances of trespassing, and threats of killing livestock, but some of these cases involve animals escaping and never coming back. Farmers argued that there should be a team of country police to protect them, but that group was decommissioned in 2008. Root Cause of the Problem Stolen and escaped animals are something farmers have been worrying about for a long time now. While some have already lost truckloads of poultry and livestock, others feel stressed and frustrated with the persistent loss of five or ten. Due to the high prices for chicken, sheep, cattle and pig, it is no wonder thievery of the same is so prevalent.
  • 3. Prevention What many farmers do not realise is that the great escape can happen any time of the day. It can be in the middle of the night, when things are calm and people are fast asleep. It can also happen in the morning, when farm owners are busy preparing for the day ahead. Chances are, no one could not notice that one is already missing until the following day when they go out to feed the animals. To prevent such situation, it’s important to invest in the right type of rural fencing. The first step every farm owner should take is to inspect their property carefully, and then look at it through the eyes of an intruder. A sturdy fence is necessary to keep poultry and livestock in place. Fortunately, a high-quality chain mesh fence provides extra security, durability and versatility. The material is a great barrier for any farm, as it is long lasting. Chain mesh fencing is highly resistant to corrosion, and can withstand the harsh weather of the country. With the right type of fencing, farm animals are less likely to get out of their confines. Farmers, however, still need to watch out for predators and thieves.
