Donations of electric fences following the completion of the project

Even after the close of the project, the Institute continued to conduct donations of electric fences that are also an effective means of protecting livestock. Primorje-Gorski Kotar County also contributed to these donations by earmarking budgetary funds for the livestock holders of Gorski Kotar.

Since the start of the project in 2003, a total of 89 electric fences have been donated to livestock holders that have committed to their proper upkeep and use. Those who have used the fences have not had any damages and as a result, they are very satisfied. Individuals have purchased additional wiring and extended the fences, while also transferring the fences to new sites in order to allow the vegetation on pastures to regenerate after being within the fenced area for a certain period of time.
