Farm fencing plays a vital role across America. It can be more costly in terms of time and money. It is one of the most important purchases you will make and if possible should be made early in the process of setting up your farm.
You have many options, such as wood, electric, barbed wire, woven or high tensile. Farm Fencing Types and Options
Traditionally wood was one of the best choices for farm fencing, often cut and milled right off the farm. Although wood is rarely used today for perimeter fencing of large pastures, its strength makes it a good choice for small pastures.
Woven wire fencing is suited for keeping pests and predators out of pastures. For years woven wire has been the choice for animals that are difficult to contain such as Sheep, goats, pigs and poultry. It is favored by many horse owners as they are less likely to get tangled in woven wire as they are in barbed wire.
Synthetic fencing often comes with a lifetime guarantee against discoloration, peeling, rusting, rotting and splintering. It is highly visible and pleasing to the eye.
Electric fencing is often used in conjunction with other types of fencing to eliminate pressure on the fence. It is generally used to contain livestock or to keep animals out of garden areas. Regular electrical outlets or solar energizers that convert and store solar energy are used to power electric fences.
