Well constructed, well positioned fencing is one of the most effective farm management tools you can have. A new fence costs a great deal of money, so you must be able to get every advantage from it. It should last for 50-80 years if properly constructed.
This book will help you identify the type of fencing you need for your farming enterprise. You will evaluate the characteristics of your property, livestock and other animals, compare the four main types of fences (Traditional, Semi-suspension, Suspension, Electric), and undertake fencing work with the most suitable materials.
