Selecting and installing the most appropriate fencing system for your grazing operation is a key step
toward successful pasture-based livestock production. Three types of fencing are likely to be used
in a grazing cell: perimeter, permanent subdivision, and temporary or portable subdivision fencing.
Electrified 12.5 gauge hi-tensile wire makes most satisfactory perimeter fence and permanent
paddock fencing. Numerous options are available for portable fencing. This guide deals with
material selection and proper installation of all types of electrified fences for grazing systems.
Materials are covered in individual sections.
