When considering fencing and building options, property owners need to compare price against durability and/or aesthetics.
An "old timer" once said a fence needs to be horse high, bull strong and hog tight. One must also consider if they are fencing their animals in or the neighbor animals out.
The links below show various fencing and building examples. See barns for more specific barn plans and ideas.
Local farm supply stores provide additional fencing material options to consider. Remember to check local zoning ordinances before beginning construction.
