New Fencing in a Pasture Field

This fencing had to be torn out. The old wire was cut loose in sections and piled in the field to keep it all together for disposal. The left side of the fence is our field and right side is the neighbors.
Our big tractor was used to pull these old locust posts out of the ground.
These piles of old wire and posts will be taken to another location on the farm for burning. We’re very careful to get all wire and metal out of the field that the cows may step on, get wrap around their feet, or eaten. Cows will eat just about anything!!
This gives a good look at how old and rusted the fencing was. This is a yearly chore all over the farm and maybe someday we’ll have it all replaced!
Our long field on the mountain had lots of broken posts from the bulls fighting and the wire was very old and rusted. We started replacing it in January.
We hauled all of the tools needed to do the work in our Side x Side.

We just put up the new fence and it looks awesome but I’m afraid the bull next door (leased by another farmer) isn’t satisfied with his herd and has been trying to push the new posts out of the ground to get to our ladies. The leasing farmer may be putting up a new fence again.

I'm just a country girl living life my way on a farm with my husband and our critters. We've been married fifty years and been farming all of that time. We've moved from one family farm to one of our own and then to another family farm that has been in the family through at least six generations. In this day and age we could not have picked a better life!

  1. You keep reminding me of how much work we used to do all those years ago. Gosh, we had a lot more energy than we have now! I love your neighboring bull story!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜Š
