Cluster fence evaluation

The Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF) is evaluating the cost-benefits of cluster fences in order to advise future investment. Benefits are anticipated as producers get on top of their pest problems, pastures respond to reduced grazing by pests and livestock production/profitability improves due to less predation and greater carrying capacity. In November 2013, DAF commenced monitoring vegetation and wildlife population trends inside and outside the Morven cluster fence. Although the fence was not completely finished until early 2015, sections of the fence had been built or were under construction much earlier.
