      Ya know, @andy, the more I think about it, the more I believe that would work out pretty well. Rebar happens to come in 12 meter lengths. We could cut them into 6 - 2 meter lengths.   Then, we could shove each length 70 cm deep into the ground. That leaves 130 cm above ground, or just over 51", which was just about my initial idea for post height, above. Maybe that would work pretty well for the goats (and possibly some pigs).   PVC comes in 4 meters lengths. Divide that into 8 cm lengths, would give me 50 pieces per length of PVC. 8 lengths of PVC is what I would need.   I try to see what current prices are for PVC and rebar, as soon as these rains stop long enough for me to get out of here.

      First, I really appreciate the images - very much in fact. That is definitely something I could look at doing.   It looks like the PVC pipe may be cut to about 7 or 8 centimeters? This would definitely be cheaper than putting up wooden poles at $6 - $6.50 each, and paying $107 USD for the 400 insulators I have been looking to order. Did he give you specific thickness of the rebar and size of the PVC pipe, by chance?
      That is a really good idea, from what I can see.   Regarding their coats, I was thinking about that, as well. But, most fence chargers I have seen, have been no more than 4,000 or 5,000 volts. This one is 20,000 volts. It may give them a bit more run for their money, and their thicker coats.   We are going to look at some goats soon, to get an idea of what type of goats, and how many we may want. I will have a look at how the guys have theirs fenced in, while we are visiting both farms.

      Paul you asked me about Electric fence insulators. My friend uses this method, tried and tested over many years on 13 hectors of land.     Another thing about goats Paul to be aware of is their coats are very good insulators too.

      Commander accused of corruption     A National Military Police taskforce has opened a corruption investigation against Brigadier General Kong Saokun, Preah Vihear provincial military police commander, who is suspected of funnelling about $20,000 from the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces. Prior to the national election, an unnamed military police officer in Preah Vihear told a local newspaper that Brig Gen Saokun funnelled nearly $20,000 from General Hing Bun Hieng, deputy commander of the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces. In the report, he said that the money was meant to support Unit K26-2’s operational costs during the national election. The military police officer also alleged that Brig Gen Saokun grabbed land from the unit, misspent budgets and was involved in the extortion of money from illegal loggers. National Military Police commander General Sao Sokha said yesterday that a taskforce was created to investigate the case and verify if the allegations against Brig Gen Saokun are true. “This work was done by the taskforce and members of the taskforce were verifying the truth,” Gen Sokha said, adding that further questions should be referred to National Military Police spokesman Brigadier General Eng Hy. Brig Gen Hy said yesterday that the investigation is ongoing. “Our National Military Police officials are on working the case,” he said, declining to elaborate. Lor Chann, provincial coordinator for rights group Adhoc, said that the investigation is an internal National Military Police matter, and that it could have stemmed from conflict of interest. “I think that this is an internal problem and that those involved are involved in conflict of interest,” Mr Chann said. “So we will continue to observe this case.” Brig Gen Saokun yesterday denied all of the accusations. “What they accuse me of is not true,” he said, adding that Gen Bun Hieng provided him with only $12,500, which was spent on equipment for the unit. “I did not commit the crime they’re accusing me of.”   https://www.khmertimeskh.com/536087/commander-accused-of-corruption/
