It helps to plan your fence layout in advance and choose the various components you’ll need to complete the installation.
Using the fence planning guide, sketch out the area you wish to enclose, noting distances. Then draw in the approximate locations of buildings or barns that will be adjacent to or enclosed by the fence.
Also include in your plan:
Location of water supplies and feeding stations
Trees or other obstacles
Low or wet spots
Entrance/exit points where gates are needed —note the length of gates
Fence termination points (e.g., at a building)
Location of fence charger and electrical source (if applicable)
Cross fences within the pasture area (temporary or permanent)
