FEATURES AND FUNCTION OF A GOOD FARM FENCE
In the agricultural sector, fences have the important task of protecting cultivated land from the possible intrusion of wild animals. To ensure good protection, farmers must choose the most suitable type of fence, considering various factors such as:
- the animal species present in the area in question, their particular characteristics and typical behaviours;
- the morphological characteristics of the area to be fenced.
With regard to the first point, we believe that fences must be designed to both form an effective barrier and ensure the safety of animals. As for the second point, farmers should always choose a fence that can ensure good performance on even the most difficult terrain, compensating for any slopes and irregularities.
We must also remember that the movement of wildlife is mainly driven by the search for food and is strongly tied to the availability of resources outside the cultivated areas. In this regard, it is good practice, where possible, to identify the routes most used by wild animals and protect their access to them.
