Whether small or large, fencing is of utmost importance on every farm.

Whether you’ve just purchased new farmland or are fixing up an existing farm, fencing should be at the forefront of your planning. Although there are plenty of other things involved in maintaining a farm that are important to plan for, poorly planned fencing can lead to costly losses and even legal issues. Fencing can also take up a good chunk of your budget, although plenty of quality, affordable options exist. If you plan on having a varied herd, keep in mind that each type of animal has its own fencing needs, and that males and females will need to be separated during breeding season. Don’t forget to be prepared to maintain and patch fencerows at a moment’s notice as well. You’ll not only want to consider the animals you’ll be keeping in but also the animals you want to keep out. Are you in an area with a lot of predators? Do you have pets that might wreak havoc if they get through your fence line? Do you have a tight budget or a strict time line? Is it important that the fence have good aesthetics? If so, are you looking for a polished or rustic look? You’ll also want to consider fence posts when working on your strategy.

When selecting a fence, consider what the fence is to be used for, how easy it is to build, the maintenance costs and how long you need it to last.
