How tall should a cattle fence be?
Fence height for perimeter cattle fences should be a minimum of 54 inches. When bulls are penned separately from cows, special attention must be paid to construction. Heavy posts with thick-gauge wire or cables are required, or electric fence may be effectively used.

What is a good distance between fence posts?
Typically, fence posts are spaced between six and eight feet apart. The corner posts are set first. To align all of the posts in between, stretch a line from each corner post to work as your guide.
What type of fencing is best for cattle?
Three basic fence types are best suited for cattle: traditional barbed wire, woven wire and high tensile smooth wire, says Ken Edwards, a longtime cattle owner and technical support manager with Red Brand-Keystone Steel & Wire.
Will an electric fence stop a bull?
Bull Fencing Bulls typically need more fencing than other cattle. Electric fences are a great option for these animals – as the electric fence not only deters but conditions them with a harmless shock. To contain bulls, make sure to maintain 3,000-4,000 volts on the fence line.
How do you drive metal fence posts into the ground?
The easiest method for driving in ground sleeves and fence posts is to use a post-pounder to create a small hole. As long as the rocks are not solid bedrock, the post-pounder will help push the sleeves into the ground.
How far apart should posts be for welded wire fence?
Use a tape measure to make sure there’s even spacing between the posts. A general guideline for metal fence post spacing is to set them 8-12 feet apart; 10-12 feet is sufficient for a five- to six-strand barbed wire fence.
