Installing High Tensile Fence Over Rough Terrain

The Fence Pros provide a detailed guide on installing high tensile fencing over rough terrain. We discuss the importance of building strong braces and line posts at key points of the terrain to maintain wire tension and prevent livestock from passing underneath. Safety precautions, such as wearing protective gear, are emphasized. The process of a center pull is demonstrated, explaining how to achieve even tension and adjust for terrain transitions. The use of specific tools like stretcher bars, chains, and Gripple wire joiners is shown, along with techniques for securing the fence at high and low points to ensure proper tension and animal safety.
