I'm in the process of putting up perimeter fence on my property, and I'm wondering: What post spacing should I use for a Field Fence ( Woven ) wire fence? My neighbors is anywhere from 11-13 feet, but they only have a couple of Nigerian dwarf goats and horses. The Cattle pasture ( a larger 600 acre ranch ) behind me has Barbed wire with 16 ft between posts. I'm planning on only having 2-3 Dexter cows ( no bulls ), 3 larger meat goat does, and 3-4 Katahdin sheep ewes. No males in the bunch unless they are offspring headed for the freezer. These will be multiple 1 acre pastures made through cross fencing as well. I was thinking of every 8 ft. with 6.5 ft 3.5 in. line posts, but if I can get away with farther spacing that could save me a ton of money on fence posts. I will probably add Electric to the fence later when there is more money. Thanks, Bob D. in FL.
