By using information in this publication, you can get an idea of long span, suspension fence costs as compared with conventional fencing.
Twenty-seven combinations involving distance between posts, number of wires, and distance between stays within spans have been observed through two seasons of use. All combinations have been successful in turning livestock. However, livestock have damaged three-wire fences more than the others. It is anticipated that a greater amount of maintenance will be required with these fences in the future than with four and five-wire fences.
