DIY Wire and T-Post Pasture Fencing


Hey there!

We’re getting closer and closer to those farm babies being here! Eeek!! So excited!! We got our diy wire and t-post pasture fencing done! Our friend Billy was kind enough to come over and help us with this one and we had it completed it 2 days!

Tractor SupplyPasture Fencing Supplies

All the supplies we needed to buy were purchased from Tractor Supply Co except the wooden fence posts, which are from Lowes.

Here are the supplies we used:

It took us a little more than 2 rolls to fence in this pasture. We’ve also tried to be extra resourceful during this time. And we were lucky to find most of the T-posts we needed in the buildings her at the barn. As well as the fasteners to attach the fence to the wooden posts. We also bought a post hole digger since we have more fencing and other uses for it down the road.

Wooden Fence Posts

First we set the wooden fence posts in the corners and also every 50 ft or so for added support. We did not add quickrete to the holes. Attaching a taught string line between fence posts ensured that the fence was being set in a straight line. Then we rolled out the fencing from one corner post to another. Next, we attached the fencing on the outside of the first corner post. The guys made a contraption for stretching the wire fence taught by screwing together 2 boards with the fencing in between them. They wrapped a chain around the board and attached it to the skid steer. Then using the skid steer they pulled the fence tight around the next wood fence post.

This method worked pretty well except we did have to space back out/adjust the wire where the boards were attached from it pulling on them. But it wasn’t a big deal.

T-Posts

After the fencing was standing taught and attached to the wood posts they started setting the t-posts. We spaced them every 8 feet or so. Again the skid steer made this an easy job 😉 Billy held them in place as Ed gently pushed them in.

DIY Wire and T-Post Pasture Fencing

Just a few more little things to do this week like adding a gate, cutting the tops off the wood fence posts, and adjusting some of the tee posts to make sure the fence is snug to the ground. I’ll also be painting the fence posts just to make them look a bit nicer 😉 It’s amazing how seeing the fencing up has really made it feel like a farm! Now I really can’t wait to see some sweet little faces looking back at us from inside it!

You can also see the progress we’ve made getting the barn stable ready HERE!

Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by the blog!
