Metal grid fencing is pretty good value, easy to install and very effective. You can have many options for entry/exit points. I use this system to keep my own 4 goats in their field.
I get the sense that all sorts of assumptions have been made with regard to the apparently couldn't care less attitudes from the local shepherds/goat herders. Maybe there is an agreement with the various *land-owners* wherein the work and added-value the goats provide is factorered in to the overal win/lose scenario. Typically a goat tether wouldn't been very long - they get tangled up - before you set the creatures free, do you recall how long their respective tethers were?
I second jeffstclair's attitude.
The tethers were very long indeed .We know the herder ,shepherd and his family.Due to their own stupidity they have sprayed their own olive groves so heavily with insecticides and pesticides that no grass will grow .So they having no grass for their own grazing look for some other land they can park their sheep and goats on illegally ,not caring what damage will be done to the bark or the olive crop .My partners olive oil is organic and has to be tested to be proved as such so she does not want any outside influences such as sheep and goat pee and poo . her land her choice!
