Guardrail.

Anyone know of any around OHIO?

I found some 12.5' pcs. for 38.00 each. decent price?

How much space should I leave between my feed wall and the guardrail?

New guardrail 13.5' pieces are $45 here in Mn = $3.33 ft so you're 29 cents a foot lower at 3.04
Used is about 1/2 price when you can find it, depends on how much work to disassemble and it's condition.


I believe the rule of thumb for all spacing is:
Wide enough for a cow, calf, steer or whatever to put their head through sideways, yet tight enough that they hang
themselves when unable to figure out how to get back out. :)

So three rails and you're in for $9/ft on the guardrail alone. You can buy high pressure continuous fencing for considerably less per foot(almost half), AND you can climb it without killing yourself when being chased/harassed. Just my $.02, so take it for what it's worth..

They have them. I would like to get some of the continuous panels and re-do my alley and holding pen. Iam tired of replacing broke wood boards every time I work cattle.

I'm not sure just how 'high pressure' those would be, but I've never used them either.
How far apart do they recommend the posts be?
As good as Preifert rough stock or Premier panels?

We are out of them right now, but that is something we normally stock. Should have more soon.

I have never bought from them but might make the trip out there this winter. Wanting to rebuild my corral and get a squeeze chute with some scales.
