Holy S**t is it really that high everywhere? here in central illinois I built another pen about 2yrs ago and just for the fence it was 1495.00 that was for 3 rolls of 330 ft fence. but that was 2 yrs ago so maybe things have changed

ooooo ok yea building and buying fence big difference..... especially if your doing it yourself or having someone else and if you have a large variety of excavating equipment handy that makes it much easier...... but not alot of people have access to those things

Wow $4.48 a gallon I shouldnt complain!!!! But the problem is if we have to pay that here in the US , it will put a halt to our recovery.... that is why our president has to change his policy or get out... I doubt he will do either!!! T Boone pickens was on Tv last night and said the chinese will be drilling off our florida coast and gulf , while obama sits and watches, whats that all about?????????

I hear ya pal, you bought at a good time and the price was certaily right. I can still get some but not at the lower cost I sold just 2 weeks ago. If you need fence, order it now beacause it is going up weekly. Call me to secure a better price today or wait and pay more tomorrow, I am trying to save everyone money

You might try recycle locations, if your not afraid of work and sweat labor, sometimes you can pickup used chain link that is not in bad condition,repaint it and slide steel on the edges to reconnect the sections.

Also check in your local section of Craigs list .com

Its terrible that it has to be this way........

In a perfect world or if your blessed with money, go with the new rolls, in this worsening economy, good luck.

you might be surprised at how low I sell new fence, I am not one of those companies who tries to make a killing on farmers, espicially in a business I love so much. If you need rolls, here is my suggestion to save money.

#1 - get as many people around you as you can to commit to some rolls, this will help off set the shipping for everyone.

#2 - Get it ASAP because steel prices are going up which was why I posted sever weeks ago a great special to everyone on new rolls while the price was still down to a manageable level. It has gone up 3 times this month already but I am still very low.

#3 - Did I mention to order it ASAP, sorry but I had to put that in again, a delay will cost you more in the end.



Guys, I am trying to help and it would be great to drop a trailer load at a farm and have everyone within a certain radious pick up there when the trucker pulls in. I have tried this several times at auctions and had a farm allow this but we never got many rolls sold. If you are willing to do this, contact me and lets help eachother, I make a little and you save a lot.
