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 ranch behind me ( a 600 arce beef cattle ranch ) has their posts spaced 16 ft apart on their barbed wire fence. I'm planning on having only 3 ewes ( I have a ram I can have them visit when the time comes ), 3 larger meat goat does, and a couple of Dexter Cows. These will be fenced off 1 acre pastures for rotation purposes. 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. Thanks, Bob D. in FL.
