Re electric fence - don't put anything on the 'field' side of the wall. That will bring all sorts of problems too. If you try that, put it on your side. Cows aren't the brightest of creatures, so a decent barrier keeps them out. Plant hawthorn if you don't want to put a fence or other type of physical barrier up, and you don't get anywhere with the farmer. They really don't like being told what to do - even when you have every right to request the maintenance. You wouldn't believe what some of them will do. I've seen it loads of times.
