When you are getting a boundary fence for your farm, there are various things to focus on, such as:

  • Clearly mark your farm property lines and separate fields into sections. This should be at the top of the priority list for you as a farm owner.
  • Since you will have specific needs, you must look for professionals that offer customized solutions. After all, farm fencing is a significant investment, and you need to get it right.
  • Choose good structure and materials that will ensure its longevity.
  • Before you begin, find out where your exact property lines are.
  • Survey the landscape to determine the best areas to place your farm fencing.
  • Get an estimate based on how much fencing you will need.
  • If your budget doesn’t allow for fencing the entire boundary and farm areas, consider which areas can’t do without fencing. You can get the boundary fence installed in stages.
  • Determine the style of fence for your farm. Some questions to ask include – What is the purpose? Are you keeping farm animals in or out, or both? Are there many predatory animals in the area?

As mentioned earlier, you need to determine which fencing style suits your property. Some popular options include: 

Classic post and panel wood boundary fences – These traditional style fences are popularly used for marking ranch and farm property lines in Colorado. You can maintain the classic look with solid wood and add some galvanized wire based on function and purpose. Make sure that you select the right galvanized wire opening.

That will depend on which animals you will be keeping in those enclosures. For example, you would need smaller mesh openings for goats, while larger ones would work well for horses and cows.
