Fund to rebuild lost fencing

WESTERN NSW farmers who have lost fencing to bushfires may get a helping hand.

NSW Farmers yesterday launched a fencing fund, calling for donations and applications.

"We want to do everything we can to support our farmers to alleviate just some of the many issues they face after a bushfire," president Fiona Simson said.

"With fencing being such a high cost and priority for farmers to repair after a fire, we thought it was the best way we could help out farmers."

More than 3500 kilometres of fencing is estimated to have been damaged by fire this summer in NSW.

The fencing fund currently holds $15,000 with the NSW Farmers' website the place to visit to make a donation or application.

NSW Farmers has also launched a fodder register with the Department of Primary Industries.
