What type of fence?
If you wish to move the fence regularly, always buy lightweight portable products such as plastic posts, poly wire and tape, reels and battery powered energisers. When a permanent fence is necessary, use wooden posts with high quality insulators. High tensile wire is ideal for farm livestock but Electro-Rope and Electro-Tape can be used with special insulators for horses.
What animal is to be fenced?
For horses, high visibility conductors are recommended such as tape or rope. Slow moving cattle or sheep can be contained with poly wire or steel wire. Nocturnal, feral animals will need a physically strong construction as they will not see most wires and simply run into the fence and knock it over in the dark.
.......they'd be all over us with out the provision of good fencing!
