T-Posts: Field Fencing Made Easy

T-Posts: Field Fencing Made Easy

T-post fencing is a practical option for your property to keep your fields, animals, and even garden safe. This fencing is an easy solution for farmers, ranchers, and homeowners as it is quick to install and cost-efficient.

T-Posts are simple metal posts that have an anchor plate to keep the post secured under the ground. They are typically green in color with a reflective top with evenly spaced studs down the length to secure your wire. These posts range in height from 5-10 feet depending on your needs. Post placement is usually 6-8 feet apart with wood or reinforced corner posts to ensure wire tension is maintained. Installation only requires a post driver as the weight of the tool pushes the anchor plate into the ground without the need to measure height.

Types of Fencing Wire


There are many choices when it comes to wire to use with your T-posts. There are several factors to consider such as the type of livestock you may be containing, the predators you need to keep out, if it’s simply a boundary, or if it’s surrounding a garden, for example.
