🛑🛑 BUY A METRE OF FENCING FOR OUR FARMERS 🛑🛑
We have been speaking with Elders Bairnsdale & some of the people in the affected areas in regards to the things that the farmers currently need desperately. One of the things that has popped up is that they require fencing materials to lock up their boundaries again as a minimum.
After speaking with a team member from Elders Rural Bairnsdale, he has advised that fencing prices are roughly:
$𝟓 – 𝟔 per metre for materials alone & $𝟏𝟎 -𝟏𝟓 per metre for materials & labor.
Just to put things into perspective, these fires across the whole of East Gippsland has roughly burnt 𝟏 𝐌𝐈𝐋𝐋𝐈𝐎𝐍 𝐇𝐄𝐂𝐓𝐀𝐑𝐄𝐒. That is about 495,049 MCG football ovals!!!
