Work Begins on Kalgoorlie Cell Fence
Protects livestock from wild dog attacks
Construction is now underway on the Kalgoorlie Pastoral Alliance (KPA) Cell fence to protect livestock and rangeland businesses in the Kalgoorlie-Goldfields from wild dog attacks.
The McGowan Government has invested $2 million in the project, which will encompass 11 pastoral leases covering approximately 2,439,400 hectares, with the fence to stretch about 950km when finished.
Construction of the fence will be co-ordinated by the KPA. It will be built to wild dog standard, about 140cm high with a lapwire, along existing pastoral station fence lines and access tracks.
