Barbed Wire, Electric Wire, and Field Wire Fencing are among the most popular fencing applications that CMC Southern Post fence posts are used for. Almost any fencing application can use one of these three types of fencing.
As with any project, the planning stage is often considered the most important part. This is especially true with fencing. Without proper preparation and planning, the best intentions can be turned to ruin.
These fences usually consist of three to five strands of barbed wire. The barbs on the wire can harm many of the more active livestock, such as pigs, horses, sheep, goats, etc. Therefore, it is recommended that barbed wire only be used for cattle containment and property line marking. It is less expensive to build compared to other fence types and ideal for long distances.
High Tensile Wire Fences
These fences are also ideal for most types of livestock. They can be used for cattle, hog, goat, horse, mule, sheep, poultry, and other game. They also do not injure the more active livestock, like barbed wire does. They are also well suited to smaller animals because of the vertical and horizontal wire.
After the fence type has been selected, the type and number of fence posts should be figured. Our online fence estimator will aid in determining the number and type of fence posts needed in your application. The typical installation will consist of a combination of corner, line, and anchor posts.
After the posts have been selected, the amount of wire needs to be figured. This will primarily be determined by the purpose of the fence. The number of strands required will determine the amount of wire needed for your fence.
After obtaining the appropriate amount of fence posts and wire, you will need to obtain all the appropriate tools and supplies for building the fence.
First, install the anchor and corner posts. The anchor posts on the tops of all rises and the bottoms of all dips. If the fence curves more than 10 degrees, an anchor post will be needed. Also, anchor posts will need to be placed after a certain distance. That depends upon the type of fencing and the type of posts.
Unroll the fence wire along the posts. Then, attach it to the posts with the wire clips.
Caring for the new fence is very simple. Depending upon the type, the fence will need to be restreched once or twice a year. Also, unlike other fence post products, the posts will not deteriorate or rot away. They will only need to be repainted if the paint is scratched off.
