I do the ones immediately below and above the strut first then the rest are easy
I'm about to fence a sleeper cow track - how far from edge of sleepers would you place posts to maximise width without cows walking on a strip of earth at the side - 0.5m?
Previous tracks we've done I've put the posts at 1ft off edge of sleepers, but feel we could push this wider.
Been a busy spell at the fencing and here’s a few pics.
Think this has been asked before, but what’s the plain wire in the middle behind the pignet for?
how come you are putting a plain wire at the top of the pig netting? I have never seen that here?
square posts, I'm guessing doemstic job, or a carpark etc.
No it's a Scottish thing.
and on a better inspection, the first pictures are in insulation, so i am guessing a live top wire.
Centre line behind the flock is standard procedure for me I think it gives new more support against sheep.
And as with line barbed or plain along top of the flock I've always done it and is commonplace up here.
I've an issue with the lack of tieing off in one of the pics but apart from that no problem
As said above. I do it for the added strength and support against sheep. And it does seem to be a Scottish thing to do. In some of the pics the top wire is live yes. Seems to be asked for more often. Although makes jumping a fence trickier.
For all the price of plain wire i don't do it on garden fences but do it as standard on all stock fencing.
Yes Ive heard its a scottish thing. Much like radisuers im led to believe they arent used much down south and tornado said to me that they sell 95% of them to scottish customers
What do they use instead of a radisuers?
Fencing done for me by nb844.
Looking the other way !
One day I will learn how to put all the photos on in one go. !
How far apart should I space posts and strainers? Got just under 100m straight with a slight rise not quite in the middle next to a neighbour who always has hungry cattle
Just about far enough apart that the professional fencing contractor can reach them all easily to load onto their machine?
Seriously, it may only be 100m, bit if you're needing to ask how far apart to space the wood, you won't know how to tie off the ends, or pull the wire correctly tight?
If it's hungry cattle on the other side, a poorly put up fence will last a few hours. Better to spend a few hundred quid and get the job done right imo
Assuming its good flattish ground 12ft is fine, less if you need to cover obstacles.
I've always found cattle and sheep are generally respectful of a solid fence (although it needs to stand up to being used as a scratch post) but if its tatty / loose etc they'll barge it down.
Pigs on the other hand can be hard on fencing especially if its a small area (isolation pens etc) so better used as an outer line to electric
