I'm sure the discussion on what makes good goat fencing will be an ever-ongoing one. However, I'm seriously considering building a fence around the entire perimeter of a 15-acre property using high-tensile electrified fencing and then some form of subdivision within the perimeter for mob grazing. I'm thinking that a six-strand approach will work with the bottom three strands being six inches apart and the top three being 12 inches apart. But, I'd like some feedback from everyone on the pros and cons of using high-tensile fencing. Let's assume if we're comparing fencing, that the comparisons are made on a well-maintained fencing systems. I'm also going to have Dexter cattle in the paddocks, too.
What are the upsides and downsides of high-tensile fencing based on your experiences?
