A simple example of fencing a square 40 acre pasture:

1320' x 4 sides = 5280' for the perimeter you might want 4 wires = 5280' x \$0.70 = \$3,696.00 Now add your corners it is a square so there are 4 corners if you want 8 H-Braces onto your corners 8 x 80.00 = \$640.00

Now to figure out the gates say you want two 12' gates with 3 rope gates. You would take 2 H-Braces 2 x \$80.00 = \$160.00.

Add to 2 gates x 3 handles per gate = 6 gate handles x \$3.75 = \$22.50. Then take 12' x 6 rope x \$0.15 = \$10.80 then add 6 - 3 Handle Hook ups x \$1.40 = \$8.40

Add them together \$3,696.00 + \$640.00 + \$160.00 + \$41.70 = \$4,537.70 for materials & corners installed. This comes to \$0.859 a ft.

You can add, subtract, multiply and divide anything you want to make it how you want it.

To make it function for you.

• 1 foot of four wire high tensile is about \$0.70 cents material only. (this includes wire, wood line posts, composite posts, insulators and tighteners) this is with wood line posts spaced at 100 ft. With Labor and Material = \$1.40 per foot.
• 1 foot of three wire high tensile is about \$0.67 cents material only.  With Labor and Materials = \$1.37 per foot.
• 1 foot of two wire high tensile is about \$0.64 cents material only. With Labor and Materials = \$1.34 per foot.
• 1 foot of one wire high tensile is about \$0.61 cents material only. With Labor and Materials = \$1.31 per foot.

Braces

• 1 H-Brace is about \$80.00 installed & material.
• 1 Floating Brace is about \$100.00 installed & material.

Gates

• Rope for gates = \$0.15 cents a foot.
• 1 Gate Handle = \$3.76 each.
• 1 foot in ground insulated wire = \$0.15

​​Other

• 1 Rapids wire tightener = \$2.45 each
• 1 Mains Energizer 13 joules = \$209.75 each

There is no mark-up on materials. Anyone who has us pound posts or install their fence can purchase their fencing materials at Kencove dealer cost through us. We do not make anything on the materials. This is a Thank You to our customers. But we do not work for free.

This is how Paul explained to me fence and I want to share it with you. The easiest way to estimate the price of the fence is to start with the cost of 1,320 ft. of fence. A square 40 acre pasture this 1,320 is the feet of one side. You are going to make a 4 strand high tensile fence with a wood post spaced at every 100 ft. and a PasturePro self-insulated wood composite post spaced at every 33ft is about \$0.70 cents a foot for material. The cost of just one strand of wire is ususally \$0.027 a foot.
