2018 marks a big year for Gallagher, with its 80th anniversary and the release of several new products. 

Celebrations will take the theme of ‘Sparking Possibilities’, a nod to the first electric fence that started the business years ago. 

The latest product releases represent what Gallagher has done well with – providing fencing and weigh scale solutions and gaining a reputation for high quality, relevant equipment. 

The fencing technology sees the completion of the Solar Energizer family, with the introduction of the S200 and S400s units, developed following the success of the smaller S10 - S100 models and said to be ideal for heavy crop grazing.

The rugged units include an integrated battery and solar model using smart technology to keep the battery power at optimum even on the darkest days. A high-quality casing and circuit protection ensures it can be relied upon in harsh environments. 

A new extra high voltage Strain Insulator is created to deal with the increased voltages delivered by modern energisers. The Strain Insulator is especially suited to places where the farmer does not want stray voltage, including electric fences close to dairy sheds and hay barns. 

Likewise, the new Insulated Line Post will offer flexibility and easy installation with a wide range of applications including fencing sheep, cattle, deer and horses. 

Farmers needing to sharpen up their livestock data collection may want to look at the TW Weigh Scales units that combine a user-friendly touch screen interface with time saving technology that has eliminated any need to re-enter data at the end of a weigh run; these generate useful reports on site.
