we’re installing some stock fencing as grazing exclosures to prevent our horned sheep accessing some new tree plantings. We need the stock fence to allow the free passing of table birds and layers so they can access both the pasture and the understorey, but need to contain our Jacob sheep. Does anybody have experience of poultry-permeable stock fence and could you recommend any products? We’ve come across pheasant-friendly net... would that be suitable? Any suggestions gratefully received
Post spacing should not exceed 16 feet. It does not matter the type of wire are the post type. Post spacing should not exceed 16 feet. And 12' is better.
A welded pipe H with a diagonal is far superior to any wooden brace.
A diagonal kicker should be installed on any turn greater than 15 degrees.
Spacing on braces is only limited by how well you build them and how far you can stretch the wire. Up to about half a mile.
