Agricultural / Farm & Ranch Fence:
Agricultural Fencing by Advanced Fencing
Traditionally, farm & ranch fence is
constructed of wood. Wire mesh or barbed wire can be added for more security whether your goal is to keep
animals in or out. Through the years PVC / Vinyl rail fence has become a
popular choice in farm and ranch fencing.
Typically 4-1/2” x 6’6” round posts are used for
the line posts and 5-6” x 8’ round posts are used at all corners or ends. All posts are pressure treated white
pine and are set on 8’ centers. A 1” x 6” x 16’ rough sawn pressure treated white pine board will make the rails
of the fence. We stagger the rails during installation so the seams do not fall out on the same post. Facing the
seams with a 1” x 6” board is always a good idea. If any type of wire is
used an “H” brace will be built at all corners and ends. This gives the
fence the strength to hold the wire tight once it is stretched and nailed or stapled up. Wire can be added to all styles of wood farm and ranch fence for added
This is a 2, 3 or 4 board fence where the boards
are horizontal across the posts
This style uses 4 boards. One on the top and one on
the bottom and the two boards in the middle make and “X”. Once installed
this style of fence will be approximately 48” - 50” tall.
2 x 4 Non Climb Wire
The 2 x 4 Non Climb Wire is specifically designed
to keep “hoofed” animals from steeping through or walking down the fence. The mesh is a 2” x 4” narrow vertical rectangle. The
galvanized zinc coated class III wire will last a lifetime with virtually no maintenance. The wire is stretched tight and then nailed or stapled to the wood posts.
We recommend adding a “top rail”, which is a 1” x 6” x 16’ board, across the
top to help keep the fence in line and give it a little extra strength. Those of us who have had horses and cows know that they like to scratch or rub on anything
they can get near. Once installed this style of fence will be approximately 50” tall.
