    I am new here live just west of Murfreesboro we just put up a kind of small area fence up and holy cow the rock and yes expensive!! We need to fence in a whole lot more, going for a bigger area next with barbed wire and maybe get a couple of cows hopefully it will be a whole lot cheaper than the field fence.

    Campbell County and for approximately 7 acres it will cost $10,000 to have high tensile put in for my goat pasture. I am not looking forward to fencing the big pasture, 22 acres. ..

    The costs are all over the place but if you aren't paying labor, it isn't too bad. I just did perimeter fence on just under 10 acres with high tensile and we spent right at $3500 for fencing and already had most of the T-posts. The link below will let you do an estimate for your needs.

    Hey all we have some great goat groups on Facebook for TN people. One is a sale list and one is a chat list.
    I am picking up my La Manchas next month.
