If you’re a farmer, your animals are your most important asset. Obviously, you do not want them wandering off the farm where they could get lost or killed. Therefore, farmers need quality fencing around their property to corral animals.
Keep Animal Corralled
A quality fence keeps your animals “in” and other animals “out,” so it offers protection from problems. No farmer wants wild animals such as deer intruding on his or her farm, where he or she could bother livestock and/or damage crops. Moreover, if you have got neighbors near you, the fence helps delineate property lines as well as maintain effective boundaries between you and them. Fenced farms help neighbors maintain peaceful relations, while unfenced farms can cause all sorts of headaches, arguments and strife. Even if your neighbor seems to be decent and fair, if one of your animals got on his or her property and caused problems, this could lead to “bad blood” between the two of you. So it’s a good idea to fence your farm, always.
A Place to Monitor
Do you have certain livestock you want to keep an eye on for some reason? A fence acts as a containment system on your farm, making for a specific area that can easily be monitored. If you want to breed certain animals, you can put them in fenced-in areas to keep them together while being apart from the rest of the herd/group. Or, if an animal is sick or injured, he or she can be placed within the confines of a recovery area, fenced in for his or her privacy and well-being.
Maximize Land Potential
Well-placed fencing manages to separate “zones” for your farm, maximizing land potential. For instance, certain areas of the farm can be used for grazing while others can be used for branding animals. Each “space” can be defined by a fence, bringing a sense of order to the farm.
Improve Your Farm’s Aesthetics
Finally, a quality farm fence can help make a farm look aesthetically attractive, both to the people who live and work there, as well as to any potential buyers. Indeed, a great fence system helps increase property and resale value.
