**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****1 Spinning Jenny = $49.75****1 ft. of water line = $0.25**

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.
