Not all fences are the same.
Even though it's easy to regard fences as a “one-size-fits-all" structure, agricultural fences are different from residential fences because they're designed to hold livestock. In addition to being strong enough to prevent your cattle, horses, or sheep from escaping, agricultural fences also need to be sturdy enough to discourage wild animals from entering your farm or property.
It's essential to find agricultural fence you can trust, and that will last for years to come.
The History of Agricultural Fences
When population and agriculture began to expand into new frontiers, livestock owners decided to fence their properties to protect their animals and keep them within an arm's reach.
The most common materials used for agricultural fencing in those early years were simple stone and wood. As technology evolved, materials became more advanced, and fencing solutions started to change. These advances fences more efficient, durable, and easy to maintain.
Below are some modern agricultural fence types that are popular today:
- Wire Fences
- Barbed Wire Fences
- Smooth Wire Fences
- High Tensile Wire Fences
- Woven Wire Fences
- Steel Tube Fencing
- Pipe Rail Fence
- Electric Fences
- Pipe Fences
- Cattle handling materials and more
