Scare or temporary fence

(a) Scare fencing, either alongside a dyke rebuilt under the contract or on metal stanchions set in the dyke, should consist of a minimum of 2 wires with posts or metal stanchions at intervals of not more than 6 metres.

(b) Temporary electric fencing is eligible where the area you are managing under the contract requires seasonal control of grazing to deliver your Proposal. The temporary electric fencing system you choose (whether single wire, multiple wires, netting, electrified tape or electrified rope) must be fit for purpose, that is it must create an effective barrier against the category of livestock being controlled.
