Looking for some help or direction. I am currently in the process of building a deer farm. I am looking to find out out in Michigan what is the best place in Michigan to get fencing and poles?

I just emailed you. If you Michigan boys can put together a truckload I can do pretty good on wire and posts. $530/roll of 10' wire (20 or more rolls), and $22 per 14' post (120 posts or more). These are delivered prices. The wire is Beakert Solid Lock and the posts are treated pine.

I can do the Stay-Tuff (23120-6-330) class 3 Galvanized 10' x 330' fence for the $520.00 delivered to a terminal in Ann Arbor where you would need to pick it up, 12 rolls minimum. 10 Year Warranty.







We know a good fence is a major investment in your property. While it's easy to see the advantages of fixed-knot fence over old-fashioned hinge joint fence, how do you decide between different brands of fixed-knot fencing?



You compare quality and ease of installation. Stay-Tuff fencing starts with top-quality North American Made wire, then we make a superior woven fence with that wire, and finally we pre-strip the roll ends to save you time and money on installation.



1 Compare Wire Quality



Wire gauge (diameter of the wire — the lower the number, the thicker the wire)

Tensile strength of the wire (breaking strength)

Thickness of galvanization — we use Class 3 only

Quality of galvanized coating — consistency



We never compromise on wire quality. Because we don't make wire, we are free to purchase the best quality that can be obtained in North America. Wire that does not meet our exacting standards for smoothness, quality of zinc coating, or tensile strength is returned to the supplier.



2 Compare Fencing Quality



Wire gauge — Stay-Tuff uses 12.5 gauge wire for the horizontal and vertical woven wires, but exceeds industry standards in using heavier 12 gauge wire for the top and bottom wire line wires. This increases the breaking strength of the top and bottom wire on the fence by over 100lbs. These heavier wires also enable a stronger, tighter wrap where the vertical stay wire wraps around the top and bottom line wire.



Number of vertical wires — Stay-Tuff fences are built with more vertical stay wires that other products on the market. Compare roll weights and you will see that Stay-Tuff's rolls are consistently heavier. More vertical stays means fewer expensive posts, reducing the overall cost of the fence.



Depth of crimp — Stay-Tuff fencing has a shorter, deeper, and more defined crimp in the horizontal wires, making our fences able to spring back undamaged from animal or other impacts. The deeper crimp also allows the fencing to follow the contours of the land more closely.



Tightness of the knots — Observe the height and width of the knots that lock the vertical and horizontal wires.



Now look at the knot side on. Notice how the vertical wire bends slightly as it passes over the horizontal wire. This bend or "crimp" in the vertical wire provides the vertical resistance that stops the horizontal wire sliding up and down the vertical wire. A smaller tighter knot is more able to hold this important crimp in the vertical wire. All Stay-Tuff fences incorporate this smaller, tighter knot.



Knot smoothness — The knots that lock the vertical and horizontal wires should be tightly formed with even "tails" that finish together at the side. These knots provide a safe barrier for your livestock.



Line wire tension — As you unroll your fencing before stretching it, the line wires should be even and the fence should lie relatively flat on the ground. Unduly large humps indicate that the fence does not have even line-wire tension. This can cause problems when the fence is stretched because each of the line wires will not tighten evenly when the fence is pulled up.



Roll size - Modern technology allows us to produce consistently smaller and tighter fence rolls, saving you money on freight costs.



3 Compare Ease of Installation



Stay-Tuff recently achieved a World First in fixed-knot fencing: All of our fence rolls now come "Pre-Stripped". (Note: we can produce them without this feature if you request.) We leave 18" of line wire clear of all vertical stay wires at the start and end of each fence roll. This enables easier and quicker installation of the fence since there is no longer any need to strip the several vertical stay wires to get enough horizontal line wire to wrap around the end post.



This is a real time saver because it can take upward of 20 minutes per roll to strip the wires required. If the roll isn't going to be wrapped around an end post, you can simply cut-off this extra "free" wire.

Ataraszki,

Welcome to deer-farming in Michigan! All the replies given above have have been good ones, beyond those I would strongly recomend that you look into joining the United Deer- Farmers of Michigan. UDFOM has a great website that includes classified adds. I see some good used fence and poles are currently being offered! Just type UDFOM into your search engine and it should pop up for you.
