Barbed wire is a popular material on today’s farms. Typically, it’s used for fencing cattle enclosures, because it is durable, cost-effective, and an excellent barrier for both your animals and any predators that may want to cross the fence line.
While barbed wire is considered a low maintenance option for cattle fencing, it does require regular attention (like all fencing) to keep it in good shape. It’s important to continually clear debris or overgrowth from the fence line, and every once in a while — when a segment of the fence starts to sag — you’ll need to tighten the wires.
