Innovation, sound advice on offer

Two years of product development are on show at the Gallagher Group site at the Central Districts Fieldays.

The site is showing lots of innovation, says the company’s national sales manager, Darrell Jones.

“On the fencing front, we will showcase the Insulated Line Post fence system,” Jones says. 

“There will also be plenty of advice on how to make the most of this lightweight, durable fencing option.” 

And to enhance effectiveness over longer runs the Electric Fence Dropper will be available for the first time. This allows post spacing to be extended, so lowering costs. It suits multi-wire sheep, goat and cattle fences, including the Insulated Line Post and any wood or steel post systems. 

“These are easily attached with a screwdriver and available in packs of ten, as a simple means to reduce fencepost spacing without compromising on wire spacing.”

Jones says farmers considering remote solar power for the electric fence energiser will get to see the company’s extensive solar energiser range; this includes the re-launched S200 Portable Solar Energiser. 

“The S200 has been re-engineered to enhance battery life and give effective power delivery regardless of daylight conditions or battery status.”

High sheep and livestock prices will justify farmers looking closely at Gallagher’s award-winning TWR weigh scale range, Jones says. 

“These are easy to use, with an intuitive menu and a clear display screen easy to see even in bright conditions,” he explains. 

“The system’s simplicity extends to its compact nature, combining the EID reader hardware into the scales. This makes setting up simple: just connect the TWR to an EID antenna panel and you’re ready to go.”
