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.
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.
After you have decided on the type of wire you will use, you will need some additional materials. McCoy's has everything you need to get the job done.
There are several other useful accessories for installing your fence.
Choosing an electric fence is a great option to deter animals from getting inside or escaping your fenced area. This option provides more protection as the entire length of the wire includes a deterrent with an electric current. You can choose to add an electric wire to your current fence or only include electric wire in your new fence. When opting for an electric fence, you will need some additional accessories:
