Fixing fence in the winter is absurdly different than fixing fence in the warmer months.
We use alot of fiberglass fence posts. We put them in the ground during the spring and summer.
When those break off because the cows did some dirty dancing or the tractor tires got caught in the zip line, they are almost impossible to get back into the frozen ground. Some people use drill bits to drill them back into the frozen ground. I don't.
This winter I had to get very creative in the middle of a blizzard when 6 of the cows got into some heavy pushing and shoving one day.
They broke 2 of the critical posts that go behind the barn, at an angle, and lead up to the water trough.
I quickly located a broken cinder block under a snow pile and used it to hold 2 posts in place until a more permanent solution could be found.
As you can see it works very well and none of the herd has gone near it since.
A few days later I found another post broken.
This is the area that we need to drive the tractor into to unload the bales of hay into the hay ring for the herd, so a better solution had to be created to fix this high traffic location.
Another cinder block was called into duty and because it was a critical area I used some special "glue" that I had on hand to wedge the post into a solid position.
It is tight, taunt and easy to drop out and to the ground when I drive the tractor in with a roll of hay.
I gave myself 15 extra points for this one...
Got some fencing tips you can share ?
