The first section of the $25 million dollar rebuild of the Dog Fence has been completed, which has been considered a major milestone.

Approximately 2,000 kilometres of the fence is on South Australian soil and is set to protect sheep from wild dogs, supporting the agricultural industry, whilst also driving economic growth, with $113 million dollars in benefits predicted over the next 20 years.

Premier Steven Marshall has said the Dog Fence rebuild will help support our South Australian farmers saving millions in pest animal management costs.

The first section of the project was completed on Curnamona Station, with arrangements for the second stage of the rebuild currently being finalised.
