When to use barbed wire fencing
Barbed wire fencing can be used on farms for the separation, containment and protection of farm animals. Barbed wire fencing is one of the most effective preventive methods for ensuring that farm animals do not leave the farm. Since it would be unproductive to keep all of the different farm animals together in one space, barbed wire fencing is also used to effectively organize animals into smaller groups. In order to protect farm animals from being attacked by wild animals, barbed wire fencing can be used to secure and safeguard the property and its containments. It can also be used to prevent animals from eating prized crops. For more on when to use barbed wire fencing on farms, contact the agriculture Wholesalers at Edge Wholesale.
How to use barbed wire fencing and common mistakes to avoid
Before installing any type of barbed wire fencing on a farm, it is best to first formulate a plan. Fences constructed from barbed wire can last several decades. Avoid future headaches by taking the time to thoroughly sketch and map out the proposed area, boundaries and any lanes you wish to include. Since barbed wire fences usually include fence posts separated by approximately 10 to 15 feet of fencing, it is also important to determine how many fence posts will be needed. Before installing, remember to plan. Not everyone is an expert in the installation of barbed wire fencing. Over the years we have witnessed a few common mistakes that farmers often make. Some of the most common mistakes made with barbed wire fence installations include: placing fence posts too closely together, not securing fence posts to the ground properly and installing fencing that is not a suitable height for containment.
