Contest to set speed fencing world record

1:34 pm on 29 January 2014

Speed and skill will be the key combination needed in Waikato this week to establish a world record for speed fencing.

The challenge, which involves putting battens on a fence, will be a feature of the Grasslandz Agricultural Machinery Expo, taking place at Ereka, between Morrinsville and Hamilton tomorrow and Friday.

It's organised by Fairbrother Industries, a New Zealand company that makes post drivers and other fencing equipment for the local and export markets.

Sales manager Ken Lawson says official recorders will monitor the speed fencing event and the results will go to the Guinness Book of Records for ratification.

The winning team will receive $1000.
