Fenced laneway

Fenced laneway

This fenced laneway makes moving these dairy cows very straightforward. The cows are making their way to the milking shed with a minimum of fuss, keeping well away from the post and four-wire electric fence. The farmer simply has to open a gate off the laneway and the cows will make their own way back to the paddock after milking.
