     1 per meter labour only for stock fence with barb on top and bottom of netting. Post and rail usually on an hourly rate as it can be very time consuming.

    1 a meter is very good value, don’t think you’d get it done for that here

    Posts, net and x2 barb should be looking at 5/metre. Post and rail (3 rails) almost 15/metre but as WnW said, post and rail is usually an hourly rate.

    Jeez I hope our local contractors don’t read this ! I can pick up the phone to at least three contractors who charge 1/ m for straight forward jobs. Obviously they charge more if it’s up the side of a mountain etc

    http://www.naac.co.uk/Docs/contracting-charges-2012-13.pdf – scroll down and you’ll see the prices for fencing, mind you, where nearly 40/hr for knocking posts in the ground comes from is beyond me!

    Straight forward fencing is completely unheard of around our parts!

    I reckon about 5pm is about right for net and 2 x barb on top. 2 of that is materials, 3 labour in my experience.

    A good fence post is 2.  You’re not going to get much materials for 2per metre.

     Well, assuming a post every 2 metres, that’s 1 per metre for posts, I think we paid about 36 for 50m of stock netting so 72p per metre and then barb on to we figured was around 15p per metre if I recall right. That’s how we got to 2.

    No he couldn’t! [:)]

    Reminds me the show “They Think Its All Over” where they noted that Alex Ferguson said Dennis Wise could start a row in an empty house.

    Nick Hancock said the full transcript of what Ferguson said went like this:

    “That Dennis Wise could start a row in an empty house” said Alex Ferguson.

    “No he couldn’t” said Alex Ferguson… in an empty house.

    I was told it would cost us 3 per metre to get a two barb fence made round here, to be honest I thought that included the posts and wire, but maybe it didn’t. We decided to do it ourselves anyway. Note: so I can fence and drive tractors, and bring in hay, I’m not totally useless, I could probably feed stuff too. But running after stuff, knowing good stock to buy and sell, at what price, etc etc is all beyond me.

    Nah, running after stuff is easy. I learnt the best way from my Dad, a farmer of 60 years. Instead of keeping everything calm and steady, it is apparently far better to go into some kind of rabid frenzy, waving your arms about and making retarded growling and whooping noises as loud as you can. Then shouting obscenities at the cattle when the inevitably panic and crash through a fence or hedge and preferably whacking the nearest one as hard as possible with a stick. That’s the way to do it. Not.

    Well if whacking a dumb creature as hard as possible makes you feel better I would suggest a change of career. Police maybe? Only Joking…
