Why do I need side fences?

Side fences keep stock safe and prevent them from by-passing grid

The side fences serve to different purposes.

When deer are present the height of the fence needs to be increased

Firstly they prevent stock from bye passing the grid and breaking through the fence/hedge or walking along the edge of the pit

Stone walls are a very effective side fence provided more agile stock do not jump off them into the pit!

Secondly they prevent animals from blundering into the pit from the side
