Best Practice Day 2023

Best Practice Day 2023

Our first best practice day of the year sold out in record time and we’re looking forward to welcoming everyone on the 24th May. Held in conjunction with Tornado Wire and organised by the Agricultural Fencing Association (AFA), the best practice day gives contractors the chance to understand the important features of fence manufacturing and see demonstrations and have discussions on best practice techniques for strained fence installation.

Some of the UK’s top agricultural fencers will be demonstrating strained wire fencing to British Standard 1722-2, which is DEFRA grant specification compliant. This will include erecting strainers, strutting techniques, turners and wire work and how to adapt techniques to different conditions.

Tornado Wire will be giving a run through for attendees on the end-to-end manufacturing process and key quality features of different fence types. As well, LineSearch and Smith Surveying will be talking to everyone about the importance of searched before digging to help limit accidents pre works in the industry and the AFI will be available for help and advice.

With lots of prizes including Fencer Fred – Hand Made Farm Fence – a rare practical guide book, a Stock-ade ST400i staple gun, a Gripple contractor tool and various gripples it’s going to be a great day for everyone attending.

Special thanks to Tornado Wire for hosting and to our demo team of Mark Evans, Rob Bell, James Corbett, Charlie Wright, Peter Redgwell, Nic Quan, Jono Bradley, Ross Heaven, Si Gibbs, Rory Samson and Duncan Samson – we wouldn’t be able to demonstrate best practice without them giving up their time for free!
