The two-man teams will have three hours to erect the high tensile stock fence.
The event will provide all fencing materials, including netting, line wire, barbed wire, and timber as well as staples, fasteners, nails, and other requisites within the finished fence. No wire joining accessories will be allowed. All wires must be tied and joined using knots. A full specification will be provided before the event.
