The kangaroo population in Australia has been increasing over recent years to the point where they now outnumber humans by approximately two-to-one.
Kangaroos also consume approximately 0.7 DSE (dry sheep equivalent) per head in feed, so following the prolonged drought conditions in NSW, and the current value of feed, it’s easy to see why many farmers are now considering what kangaroos are costing their enterprise in both feed and production losses.
Exclusion fencing is one method available to help keep the roos at bay, however the costs of either installing a new fence, or increasing the height of an existing fence, have been above the budgets of many, not to mention a labour-intensive exercise.
The good news is that there is now a cost-effective, low-labour fencing solution available on the market to help keep the roos out of your place and help ensure you are retaining as much feed value on farm as possible, and getting the most out of your livestock.
High Jump Fence Extenders allow you to retro-fit your existing fences and increase their height by 60cms.

They have a patented sleeve that easily slides onto standard steel posts (star pickets) and they are secured by the top fence wire.
Once the extender is in position, the wires can then be installed to suit your application, either plain, barbed, electric or a combination of these.
There is no welding or bolting required, saving time and labour.
The extenders can also be installed on every second post to help contain per metre costs, making High Jump Fence Extenders an affordable option in the exclusion fencing space with a quick return on investment.
As a result the question is no longer can I afford an exclusion fence, but can I afford not to have one?
