Fences for Boer Goats and Meat Goats

Goats are more difficult to fence than cattle. Fences that hold goats are more expensive to build than cattle fences. Poor fencing is one of the most common causes of failure for meat goat producers.

There are many different fencing systems that work well for goats. Detailed specifications and illustrations for some of these systems which have worked well for us and for some of our neighbors who raise goats, have been published in the article: Raising Meat Goats – Obstacles to Success.”
