Wire Farm Fences Include Barbed, Woven, and High-Tensile
Barbed wire fences are usually classified as either standard or suspension barbed wire. Horizontal woven wire fences are separated by vertical wires known as stays. High-tensile wire fences, held in tension between wood end-posts, use posts and battens to properly space the wires between posts. Between the three, high-tensile fences have the most potential for longevity and lower costs.
Pros and Cons of Electric Farm Fences
Electric fences have advantages and disadvantages. They prevent livestock from leaving, but do not stop tech-savvy vandals from entering. Electric fences are less expensive than wooden ones, but need more maintenance. Often, they are most useful when combined with a wooden or rail fence.
Farm Fence Laws Vary in West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Ohio
Depending on whether your farm is in WV, PA, or Ohio, your state’s fence laws will vary. In WV, fences must be four feet, if consisting of posts and rails, posts and planks, or pickets. Farm fences in Pennsylvania, placed on property lines, are totally shared between neighbors, including the costs of installation and maintenance. In Ohio, barbed wire, hedges, or electrified wire farm fences cannot border any properties unless adjoining neighbors give written consent. If you can meet these regulations, Neel’s Fence Company Commercial, Inc., can install farm fences in PA, WV, and Ohio.
