Types of Farm Fencing
Some of the different types of available farm fencing include:
Barbed Wire Fencing
Barbed wire is one of the most common choices for farm fencing because it works well when it comes to confining relatively docile animals in large spaces. This type of farm fencing is made up of two or three horizontal strands of woven wire with sharp barbs that are attached to metal or wooden posts. While it may not be the most attractive type of farm fencing, barbed wire is highly effective for keeping animals contained.
Welded Wire Fencing
One of the most basic types of farm fencing is welded wire fencing, which is made from rigid wires arranged in vertical and horizontal rows, creating a grid of squares that are typically 2″ wide and 3″ or 4″ tall. This type of farm fencing is ideal for more light-weight applications, such as confining small animals or protecting gardens.
Rail fencing is a type of wood fencing that is made up of two or three horizontal rails attached to wooden posts. This type of farm fencing is most often used for ornamental purposes unless it is combined with a type of wire fence to improve its practical function for containing livestock.
Electric fencing is one of the most effective types of farm fencing for containing all types of livestock, as well as for protecting livestock from predators. This type of farm fencing is made up of insulated horizontal wires attached to vertical stakes. Pulsating electric current runs through each of the wires in order to deter livestock from brushing up against it.
