For a third year, Taragate offers visitors its Fieldays fencing demonstrations on an expanded site.

The idea is free and interactive fencing advice for all, visitors being welcomed onto the site from 10am until 3.30pm each day.

Live and interactive demonstrations are run continuously by three top professional fencers and fencing instructors.

Visitors can get up close to the fence line and demonstrator in a relaxed interactive environment that promotes watching and learning.

"A solution to every fencing requirement will be demonstrated," the company says.

Fences will be seen under construction using tractor driven postdrivers from Fairbrother Industries and Fence Pro, and fencing materials suppliers Farmlands, Eurocorp and Permapine will take part.

Visitors can enter a draw to win a Husqvarna chainsaw (value $800) by answering three simple fencing questions.
