Are you looking for a way to contain cows so they will graze in a specific area for a short period of time? Are you looking for a heavy duty fence that will contain livestock on a permanent basis?
Learn about the types of fence posts available. We also offer expert tips for placing your line electric fence posts and corner fence posts. Since they must withstand enormous tension loads, the key to constructing a solid fence starts with corner posts.
A fence made only from wood posts would be a considered a completely permanent fence, but it would be the most expensive of the fence post options available.
Wood posts must be used for corners because of the additional stress and strain put on these posts. Wood posts for corners should be 24-48 inches in the ground and more than 48 inches in sandy or rocky soil.
Wood posts can be used for the line fence also since they are long lasting permanent posts. A fence made from wood posts is very strong and can last for generations, which, over time, may eventually help defray the cost of this type of fence.Shop Wood Posts Now »
A less expensive but also a permanent line fence would have T-posts along the lines and wood posts at the corners. Most line posts are T-Posts. T-Posts are long lasting, permanent posts made from recycled train tracks.
These posts are driven into the ground with a handheld post pounder. Each post should be driven 18-24 inches into the ground depending on the amount of strain the post will be under.
Although T-Posts do an excellent job of holding the fence, wood posts are still needed at the corners due to the higher strain of the fence wires at the corners. A T-post fence would be more expensive than a Step-In Post fence, but it would last longer.Shop T-Posts Now »
If you want to build a temporary electric fence that will cordon off an area where livestock can graze for a short period of time, Step-In Posts would be ideal for that purpose.
Step-In Posts are inexpensive posts specifically designed for temporary fencing. These posts can manage regular wire, Polywire, Polyrope and Polytape.Shop Step-In Posts Now »
Be sure that you do not dig in a location that may have buried wire, gas or water lines without getting the clearance to dig.
Corner posts of an electric fence system should be wood posts. Whether your fence is designed to contain livestock or to repel predators, these wood posts should have at least a 6 inch diameter. One end of the wood posts should be placed 3 to 4 feet into the ground.
The corner posts take tremendous tension loads and are the key to a solidly constructed electric fence. Long runs of multiple-wired fences also need brace posts along the line of fence.
Bracing the corners and brace posts help dramatically increase the strength of the corners and fence. See corner post line art for image.
Temporary or portable posts are usually lighter and smaller.
