Easy-to-use, safe, and secure farm fencing supplies

Quality products and solutions for lifestylers, big scale farmers, and fencing contractors

You need a safe and secure fence for your rural property, but you're not sure of the best and most affordable farm fencing supplies and solutions to use?

You head to your local farm supplies shop and ask them. But they're limited with the generic products they stock.  The person you speak to might not have the practical background experience.

They might just want you to buy and go, or worse-throw you a catalogue and refer you to their website.

Are you struggling to find rural fencing contractors who are free to take your job?


Or are you a fencing contractor needing some quality, affordable materials to work with?

Call us!

We work with you to find a solution that meets your individual fencing requirements.

Lea Rig Livestock - Reparian and bush protection fencing using Styx farm fencing battens

We operate a bull finishing farm in rural northland and a busy road runs through the middle of our farm. It is paramount that stock is kept off the road. We recently replaced our roadside fences with a 5 wire fence, 3 hot and 2 dead wires. The plastic battens that we purchased from Styx Solutions have allowed us to keep the roadside fences hot which is vital and also gives us peace of mind that bulls cant push through the fence if the power is out. While yes they are more expensive than traditional wooden battens we have used less battens, they hold the fence in position and they are really easy to put on (no stapling on battens, just click with the easy to use hand tool). According to a number of locals the black battens with the wooden posts also look beautiful!
