2019 Gallagher Landcare Fencing Grants
Gallagher offers a full range of animal management products and integrated solutions, including a range of permanent and portable electric fencing. The launch of the Gallagher Landcare Fencing Grants, represents an expansion of Gallagher’s partnership with Landcare Australia to increase the company’s efforts in demonstrating their commitment to local communities and the environment.
In May, eligible applicants for Gallagher Fencing Landcare Grants were invited to apply for an individual fencing project grant for up to $8,000 (ex-GST) including fencing materials – up to 12 grants are planned for 2019.
Grant applications are now closed. We will be announcing the successful grant applicants in late June.
Grant projects will align with one or both of the below priority areas:
- Grazing management
Electric fencing has revolutionised pasture management techniques meaning better profitability for farmers. Permanent or portable systems are used to subdivide pastures for more effective grazing, keeping the grass fresh, short, high energy and palatable which ultimately leads to increased milk and meat production.
- Conservation fencing
Installing conservation fencing can help exclude threats to valuable native plants and animals, such as: Browsing or trampling by herbivores (such as stock, rabbits or kangaroos); Preventing damage from people; or even to keep out introduced pests.
