Old white man of the day

When a horse called Joe took too much of a liking to using a car as a scratching post, owner Bill Gallagher scratched his head for a solution.

He devised a cunning electrical circuit that delivered a shock whenever the horse rocked the vehicle. This quickly cured the problem and sparked the idea for his electric fence invention.

That was in the early 1930s. By the end of the decade, Bill had built his first electric fence and had made a long-term commitment to building a great business that redefined what’s possible for its customers.

Bill, as well as being an old white male, was a New Zealand farmer, inventor, manufacturing engineer, businessman and commercial fisherman.
