I dont know if any of you would know anything about this or not but I am puttin up fence for my lambs and goats and need to pay minimal price for everything. What would be the cheapest way to go, t-posts with electric fence or wood posts with high tensil wire? If there are any other cheap options please let me know. I have to have this done ASAP too so any help would be greatly appreciated

If you're just trying to keep THEM in and not other critters out high tensil is cheapest/fastest.

I lock them in the barn at night because coyotes are a big problem but during the day I can keep an eye out for yotes. The only problem with high tensil is that they only sell it in 4000ft rolls

How many acres are you looking to fence?
You could do 8-10 strand and keep out most of the yotes or make paddocks and rotational graze.

High tensil is gonna be you're best bet (cheapest) and you're lockin em up at night so it shouldn't be a problem. Get a good charger and you'll be ok.

Charger is the box that lights up the wire when grounded.
You either need to run a electric line to the charger or buy a solar operated charger. Depending on the pen location, you will need more wire than you think from the charger location.
