Walters Fencing cattle yards project in Kickerbell West, Pine Ridge NSW takes out Innovation & Excellence in Stockyards & Arenas category of the 2022 Australian FENCING Awards.
The client for this project by Walters Fencing wanted an item-for-item replacement of timber cattle yards with all steel finish.
Rails were required to be run flush with the outside of the posts to reduce livestock bruising, adding a double-railed design on both sides of the posts was requested also for additional rigidity.
The customer requested the recycling of antique heavy mesh sheets and gates for the holding yards.
Corner strainers were driven to a depth of 1.75m and 5 rails were welded on above ground.
Products used in the project included Austube Mills gal cattle rail with a DuraGal finish, Poplar Pastoral hinge and post cap products, Rotech rail joiners, Weldclass gasless mig wire and Walters Fencing post driver trailer.
