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.

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.
