Is that stand Kangaroo proof CJ?
I heard a full grown Kangaroo can knock a hive off a stand with his back feet?  grin

Setup looks lovely! How deep are your posts? Here I have to go 3 feet or more to get below the frost line or the stand will heave in the winter and the level will get wonky .....   grin grin

Yeah they seem to have settled nicely  Smiley Cheers!
Haha! Should be Roo proof! I sunk the posts about 350-400mm. The stand was designed with our cows in mind - anything to them is a good scratching post so hopefully this will stop them tipping them if they get under the hot wires.
