Driftless SW Wisconsin

Jim - 1/11/2019 11:43 I like a simple 4 wire barb wire fence. With 4 wires bottom wire can be 12" high so you can mow underneath. 5 steel t posts then a wood post will stay tight on varied terrain. Put in good braced ends.
Why a wood post every so often? I’ve seen that and wondered why they do that.

In our hills and valleys, as you tighten the wires in an all-T post fence, the T posts on the top of the hill tend to pull over and the T posts in the valleys tend to pull up and out of the ground and this is on a straight line fence.

A wood post every so often tends to stay upright on the top of a hill or rise and is a lot harder to pull out of the ground in the low spots than a T post.

With any bends or curves in the fence the wooden posts help even more.  Either way a barb wire fence with wood posts every so often will stay tighter over time than a similar but all T post fence.
