Different Types Of Agricultural Fencing – Agricultural fences are the oldest types of fences, they had a major part in the beginnings of civilization thousands of years ago. Today agricultural fences are just as necessary to maintain boundaries and keep animals in or out of certain areas. If you need to build a fence for your property, there are many different agricultural fence Olympia types to choose from.
If you own rural land and want to put a fence on the perimeter of your property, or have different fenced off areas on your property, you need to figure out which type of fence is the best option for your budget and for your property. First of all you have to consider what animals you are trying to keep in or out. If you have livestock like cattle and sheep, then barb wire may be a good choice since it can discourage sheep from crawling under, and cattle cannot get through the large gaps that some barb wire fences have.
Animals can get hurt on barb wire, so it is typically not used to contain horses, since they move much faster than other livestock and could actually injure themselves. Many wild animals can get through barb wire fences, so if you want to focus on keeping wild animals you might want to consider woven wire fences. A woven wire fence Olympia can keep your animals safe while keeping other animals out, and if it is tall enough they are effective deer fences. Wire fences are typically cheaper than other materials, but the cost depends on the type of wire used, the wire’s strength, and the posts used.
If you do not have a lot of land that needs to be fenced, or if you want a more aesthetically pleasing fence than barbed wire, you may want to consider wooden fences. You can usually spot wooden split-rail fences on agricultural land, they work great for horse pastures and can keep domesticated animals in while keeping many wild animals out. Large farms or industrial agriculture do not often use split rail fencing, but they are perfect for smaller sized properties that are zoned for agriculture.
There are also agricultural fences available made with synthetic materials, which can withstand the elements and wildlife longer than your typical wooden or metal fences, so you do not have to worry about maintaining the fence Olympia as much as wooden or metal fences.
