Scything under an Electric Fence

A throw back to May 2020, during Lockdown 1.

Periodically cutting the grass along the fence line stops it touching the bottom wire and shorting out the fence.

Vegetation touching the electric fence decreases it’s power and efficiency (and increases the chances that the livestock will break through!). The scythe is the ideal tool for the job 🙂

And oh if we had that much grass now! We’re having such a cool, dry spring and grass growth is really behind.
