Getting ready to build a 2 wire 12.5 ga. fence. It will be aprrox. 1800 ft long. What height should each wire be? Also, any help on corner posts and/or bracing would be helpful. I will be using T-posts, how far a part can they be? Any help is appreciated!

Refer to the Gallagher Fencing Book. A two wire cattle cross fence should be 30" hight with the second wire 10" below the top wire. Post spacing 60 - 75 feet. Controls stockers, Dairy, Mature cattle. I have build my 12.5 gage wire, five strands outside and three strands cross fence using high tinsel fence wire. I used the Push-A-Post Brace System with outstanding results. It is make from 1.33 lb. T post. It can withstand the pull of five strands of 12.5 gage wire for over a quarter mile using the I beam post they provide. I know because I did it.

We use a floating brace system for all end and corners that don't have hanging gates on them. Works great, cheap and strong.
