Fence Configurations - Cattle

​A Gallagher high-tensile fence offers plenty of advantage. For a safe, permanent barrier a 2-wire system will suffice. For beef cattle with calves, a 3-wire system is the best solution. See other cattle electric fencing configurations below to select the system that is right for you.
