Conventional spacing for general fencing is to set the posts 5 metres apart
A major consideration for fencing is how far apart the fence posts should be set. This will vary due to local conditions, type of livestock, local farming customs, and the degree of control required.
Conventional spacing for general fencing is to set the posts 5 metres apart. This is especially required for netting or horse fencing, but could apply to any rural fence.
For many broadacre fencing applications, cost savings can be made by using Steel Fence Droppers at 5 metre intervals, with posts 10 or metres apart.
