A tractor will work too, but a skid steer will run rings around a tractor.

but even if the rancher unknowingly had a bad fence, that won't remove an even bigger word...


In the Texas statute that CB was subtly referring to, the word 'knowingly' only pertains to knowingly allow stock to roam free. The state sees no difference in whether the fence is a 10' tall HT net fence or 3 strand elec fence...they are only concerned with whether the stock owner knew he had stock that could get out.

For the majority of Texas farmers/ranchers, there is no 'minimum fence' stipulated when it comes to keeping livestock in.
It's only along a State or Federal highway that specifics get involved, and the farm to market roads (all 3000 of them stretching 41,000 miles) are not included as state roads when it comes to fences..........except the State does tell you what kind of fence you have to have to keep other peoples stock OUT of your property.

There is not a person on this board that has not brought an old fence up to snuff with cutting away growth and putting in patches. everybody talks a big game but reality is what it is.

What about the fences on your place ?? They are all brand new and nothing is patched??

I know I got half azz fences in some places just like everyone else does.

All of my perimeter on my home place is 10-11 strand barbwire. Tight and right.

All of the perimeter fence on my lometa property is net with Barb.

Lease places are patched....
You gonna post those pics are not??

I guess I am fortunate to live in a “free range” area. If my cow gets on the road and somebody runs into it they gotta dig out their check book.
