River Valley Fencing recommends the following permanent fences for sheep:
- 5' fixed knot, woven wire (with 3" vertical stays and hot wire) predator deterrent fence
- Multi-species fence (4’ fixed knot with 3” vertical stays and hot wire)
- 4’ fixed knot with 6” vertical stays and hot wire
- 4’ 6-strand high tensile electric fence
We're enjoying the sheep and appreciate every day, the great job you did installing our fence. As you recall, one of our concerns had been the potential visual impact of the fence on our landscape. The posts being 20 feet apart combined with the woven wire provides a highly secure enclosure with minimal visual intrusion. The new fence does its job beautifully without drawing attention to itself. We love it and so do the sheep. Thanks again.
