Kiwi Tech Fencing

so here at full circle farm there's a few reasons I've come to this farm one it's really at its beginning stages this isn't a farm that's been going for fifteen years and got all the systems set up so its raw they're still creating their farming techniques and practices and the other thing Shannon knows a lot about holistic management and grazing animals and but one thing I want to show you now is the Kiwi tech fencing this is something that a few of our clients use and it's actually got nothing to do with chickens but if you're running cattle on your farm this is a great product and it's portable infrastructure that I'm a massive massive fan of so we'll see how this Kiwi tech fencing works in real life and how it sets up and it could just be a real asset to your farm this is Kiwi Tech this is their their permanent stuff this is their permanent flexible posts so it's basically designed we've extremely hard I don't even know what it's cool but extremely hard plastic and as it goes as you drive it into the ground it's just like how an arrow work going through someone's body and yeah it goes down and the the fans out like that and then it takes I think it's five ton of pressure to get it out so I'll give you a little example it's a way to do and this is this is the end product so the post is flexible so walking over you can even get quite attachments where your quad just drive straight over the top of it we we have we're on a floodplain here so we get floods so when when there's a flood we don't get post ripped out of the ground that just bends over as the water flows over and then once the floods finish it pops back up you can run as many wars as you want we're just running two at the moment and you know for cattle is you can easily just want a single strand but yeah basically how the opponent fence post goes in you buy a little bit this is a Kiwi tectonic similar to a star post remover or so that's in and then to engage the we caught the wings I'm sure there's a proper name for it of the arrow you just this is the pressure you get and then that engages the wings and then there's nothing that's gonna pull that out it's done it's pretty in there so yeah so this is how you remove the the permanent arrow post it's just it uses a five to one lever and something like five tons of pressure it needs to get out but basically this metal part clamps onto the post and just leave is it out and when it's really when I pushed it in far the the the barbs come out like that and then you basically just straighten them up and you can reuse it so it's um it's not just one use for this venting you can reuse some peeps a time so that's the permanent setup and then there's other components of the permanent setup that make it such a awesome little fancy design one of those is the spring so you have your flexible posts along your run then you have your you don't need stays or anything this is just a strain adjuster just a post straight into the ground and this is the spring design so the plan is that when animals get caught Wallabies come through you're not going to get fence snaps or deer or whatever they're going to come through accidentally get caught or whatever and there's given the fence because of the spring and then when they go just goes back to this spot there's all cool stuff you can do with it this is this is just a gate this doesn't look like it but it's a gate so yeah and that's the design of this this little mechanism down here because if I open this gate that stops the fence from dropping all the way along the run so this fence stays up and then the gate can be open [Applause] the design at the end if you get a snap wire down there this handle is amazing well it's not amazing it's just really smart so you wind up a spare wire and if you get a if you get a break somewhere down the fence you can unroll a bit of the wire off this crimp it at that end or or do your figure eight knot or whatever you want and then you just whine this back onto the handle you wrap the handle around get the tension you want then hook it back and it's done so repairs three minutes if that other fence break and then you've got your tension the springs there amazingamazing a little design and simple and they're really easy to use and the other type so that's your permanent fencing the other type is is the temporary temporary fencing so your cross fencing so if you matter imagine I'm sure a lot of farms would know what I'm talking about but if you got imagine a ladder so you've got your two vertical runs like your paddock like that and then the the horizontal though the rungs on the ladder is your cross fencing – what you what people call it strip graze your cattle so the way I do those cross fencing is by the temporary pack so the way this works is you know here you're trying to run out cross fencing and you've got you know you've got the the post hanging over your shoulder and you got the wire and you're trying to balance it or and you've got to put the post down and then grab a post and put the wire down to feed that through the design with this is it's all done on a carry pack it just sits neatly in like that so theoretically what you do if you imagine this laneways are paddock you connect one end and there's clip so you can do this I'm just doing this with a with the not at the moment you just run the power off your permanent and then basically what happens does you walk it out yeah I'll put it in the eye as you walk it out you're putting offense posting as you go hook it on snap it down hook it on let's game for them and then you tie it off at that awfully on the other side so it's a way to run out an incredible amount of cross fencing in such a quick amount of time everything's here and a nice little pack you can fit a heck of a lot of fence posts on and yeah it's just really straightforward stuff and that's it

  1. Hi , I am using the portable Kiwitech which works well. What steel wire are you using for the permanent fences as the recommended wire is thinner than the 2.5mm generally available here in Australia?
