Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats

for people who love the littlest dairy goats

They must think I am filthy rich!

Now I know fencing is never cheap, but this is just ridiculous. I have been looking at feed lot panels like the ones WG4 has and in my area they are between $50 and $90 each! I looked online and found some for $19 each. What I find amazing is that for one foot less height wise they are $16 online and $22 in the store. I will eventually need 3 pens and MAYBE 4. If I buy all the panels together online they are cheaper even with shipping! Has anyone had success with 3 ft high fence? Or should I just go with 4ft.

I am going to keep them on the porch for a few weeks at night...so I can check on them a lot, and probably put them in the small yard during the day until the panels arrive.

you never realize just how expensive fencing is until you start fencing!! I have probably 22 acres in field, but it is barbed wire on the road side and my husband took down the cross fence couple of years ago. He passed away in 2006 - so now I realize what was spent when he first put it up. OUCH! And the field fence now days - is so flimsy!! But you can buy 3x the field fence for the price of "no climb" fence. Luck with your fence!! :)

yeah, I feel like a crazy lady with all these separate fenced in areas. lol

yeah, I think we are going to stick with the stationary fence too... we kinda like it, and we have enough to make 5 pens so I could move the goats around if I wanted... until we get more goats....

wow are those $32 each panel??? I used field fence - but the panels sure would be nice so you could move them around!!!!

WG4 could give you the best info on how to connect the panels, since she's been doing it for a few years. I'm not sure if she'll see this post though, since it's not in the discussion forum, and the title doesn't really talk about fence panels.

Thank you both for the advice. I don't mind spending money on something, but I have to get the best deal...I guess it is just how my brain is wired. I do the same thing at the grocery store...and everywhere. How do you connect the panels and get into and out of the pens easily?

I bought the four foot combo panels and they were $32 in my area. They work great!

It TOTALLY depends on the goats. Yes, some will stay in with three-foot fencing, but some will jump it without even trying hard, so it's better to just get the four-foot to start with.
