Agricultural Fence / Farm Gate / Post Rail and Stock Fences / Farm Livestock Fencing

POST RAIL & STOCK FENCEAgricultural farm fencing is one of the major costs when operaterating an agricultural property or farm livestock business. Agricultural farm fences can be used for stock proofing, sub-division and setting boundaries for cattle, sheep, pigs and goats.

Post and Rail Fencing, Stock Fencing, Deer Fencing, Woven Wire Fence, Barbed Wire Fence, Mesh Wire Fencing and High Tensile Wire Fencing are some of the more common types we use in Devon, Cornwall, Dorset, Somerset and SoutWest England.

The type of Agricultural fence constructed along with the shape of the paddocks greatly effects the total cost per metre of fencing. In addition, the shape of the paddocks affects the amount of materials needed and labor required for construction.
PADDOCK STOCK FENCING
Everytime the stock fence changes direction
( some times elevation ) straining posts and strain wire will be required. Please take this into consideration when planning your paddock or field livestock fencing.

Fencing allows farmers and stockman to contain all types of animals such as cattle, sheep, pigs and goats. Choosing the type of Agricultural fence depends on the type of livestock and personal choise.

Most types of Agricultural fences can be used with cattle but sheep would require woven wire fencing and high tensile electrified fencing. Pigs just usually need woven wire type fence.
FIELD LIVESTOCK FENCING
When planning your stock fence please consider:

  • What type of livestock are to be contained?
  • Consider future or multi animal use?
  • What are the ground area conditions?
  • Consider what you are keeping out?
This will determine size of the posts, post centers, use of barbed wire and number of rows, type of stock netting to be used.

Barbed wire / Stainless Barb Wire

Barbed wire for agricultural fencing is typically available in two varieties—"soft" or mild-steel wire and "high tensile". Both types are galvanised for long life. High-tensile wire is made with thinner but higher-strength steel. Its greater strength make fences longer-lasting because cattle cannot stretch and loosen it. It copes with the expansions and contractions caused by heat and animal pressure by stretching and relaxing within wider elastic limits. It also supports longer spans, but because of its "springy" nature it is hard to handle and somewhat dangerous for inexperienced fencers. Soft wire is much easier to work but is less durable and only suitable for short spans. Used also for security fencing.
