Permanent high tensile electric fences use well-anchored wood posts to support steel wire under high tension. While more time-consuming to install than other electric fence systems, it is the most effective permanent perimeter fence and provides the highest level of security for keeping out or containing difficult or aggressive animals, such as bulls or predators. A well-built high tensile electric fence requires minimal maintenance and will last 20-plus years.
High tensile electrified fence advantages are:
• easier to handle than woven or barbed wire
• has no barbs to injure livestock
• minimum maintenance with long life of fence
• easily electrified
• requires fewer posts
• less expensive than other fence types

Thanks for the links. I forgot to mention we will also be installing rainwater collection on the homes and barns. I will look into the slingshots though...Thanks for the heads up.
