These are quite common near where I live (we have a lot of sheep grazing right next to the road and these stop them getting out onto the main road).

In terms of how to deal with them on a motorcycle; they're nowhere near as bad as they look. The two bits of advice I would give are:
"treat them like train tracks", IE, ensure you cross them perpendicular to the direction the bars/holes run.
"treat them like ice", IE roll over them on a constant, gentle throttle, with the bike upright, avoid accelerating or braking hard on them.
I like my bike because I can overtake 4x4s down farm tracks with a week's worth of shopping on the back.

Agree, just a slippery angled surface that may move under you. So hit it square and solidly in control of the bike, and it will be a non issue. Try being clever or creative, and it could well bite you.
