Living in Wyoming, we are known to have wide open spaces. However, when people have livestock including cattle and horses, its important to fence them in to keep them contained and safe.
- When choosing fencing for agricultural purposes, consideration should be taken regarding safety, containment, budget, and maintenance.
- Vinyl fencing prevents injury to horses and requires minimal maintenance. White fences are also more visible at night which can reduce collision risk.
- High tensile woven wire and poly-coated wire fencing are fairly inexpensive. This type gives you the option of using electric fence wire on the top.
- Barbed wire fencing is always an option as well for containment of livestock.
