How to install barbed wire fence?
1. Safety First
1>Wear protective gloves, boots, and clothing to prevent serious lacerations when handling fencing components.
2>Protective eye-wear is required! Sharp edges of fencing and components can cause serious eye injury.
3>Coiled fencing is under tension. Stay clear of fencing when releasing strapping from coiled fencing to prevent being struck and injured by fencing components.
4>Local building code requirements should be consulted where applicable.
5>Never tighten barbed wire with a tractor.
6>Carry staples in an apron, not in your mouth.
7>Stand on the opposite side of the post when tightening wire.
8>Do one job at a time - don't rush!
9>Work with a partner to make the job safer and easier.
2. Make a Fence Plan
Sketch out your fence needs to the same scale as your land use plan. You should be able to figure how many linear feet your fence will be. For even greater accuracy, run a measured string along your planned fence line. Add up the total length minus gate openings. Fencing is sold by the rod, 80 rods or 1,320 feet per roll.
3. Selecting the Right Style of Fence
For the most economical combination of materials, designs and construction methods, consider these questions:
How rough is the terrain? What kind of livestock, i.e. sheep, cattle? How many head per pasture?
4. Barbed Wire
There are two styles available. A choice between the two styles is primarily a personal preference.
