predator question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

If I build a salatin style tractor, what modifications should i make to predator proof it?  I think not using chicken mesh but 1/2" wire for the sides and open top, but what about predators that would dig under it?  That's my concern.  Maybe have a 12" wide wire flat on the ground all the way around?  I could connect it to the sides of the tractor and then pin it to the ground after I move it daily.

That works either pin it or lay some stepping stones on it.
