Who needs agricultural fencing?
Agricultural fencing is necessary for many types of rural properties in and around Calgary.
Naturally, farms need their perimeters secured to keep cattle in and to clearly demarcate the boundaries.
Livestock will wander unless fences define their boundaries. This makes them vulnerable to predators, theft, and exposure to the harsh elements in Alberta.
We provide over 10 types of farm and acreage fencing that protect your Calgary farm in different ways.
There are affordable, durable options for almost every type of agricultural fencing requirement.

If you have a large vegetable garden, you will certainly want to keep games and other predators out. This may call for a high agricultural fence.
Often, 10’ game fence construction with wire mesh is suitable for this type of fence, acting as a deterrent to predators. Many other options are also available to not spoil the appearance of your garden.

Installing fencing along roads and highways helps protect both public and private property. It keeps livestock off the road and wild game from entering your property.
These types of fence projects are especially challenging because you need to abide by local municipality or county laws when constructing fences by roads.

Public parks and recreational areas in Calgary can also use agricultural style fencing to protect and demarcate areas such as tennis courts, baseball diamond backstops, and swimming pools.
These need to be sturdy and durable enough to stand up to the wear and tear they will receive from both humans and the elements.
Private properties with leisure and recreational facilities like pools and courts may also need agricultural fencing for the same purpose.

Commercial dog kennel businesses can use agricultural fencing to separate dogs while allowing them the freedom to run and play.
Chain link fencing is low maintenance and ideal for outdoor runs and can have special guards fitted for dogs that can climb and dig, like huskies and wolf dogs.

Horse breeders often need special agricultural fencing. This may consist of wire, posts and rails, high tensile wire, split cedar or another type of agricultural fencing material.

What type of fencing is best for cattle?
Corrals for cattle and paddock fencing are usually made of wire (galvanized barbed wire or high tensile wire), posts and rail, post and plank, vinyl rail, or split cedar.
Your choice will depend on the volume required, the type and number of cattle, and your budget, as well as aesthetic preferences.
Speak to an advisor at First Class Fencing about the most suitable type of agricultural fence for cattle.
How high should a fence be for cattle?
To prevent cattle from escaping by jumping or climbing over your fence, construct it to a height of at least 48 inches.
Bear in mind that cattle may rub against and put pressure on the fence, so height is not the only consideration.

Fantastic service, great prices, amazing quality and overall fantastic people to deal with! Would definitely recommend these guys to all my family and friends! They go above and beyond and won’t leave till the job is perfect!!
As a painting contractors and real estate agent, I have no doubt in confidence in their work. Great leadership and workmanship throughout. You’ll get to experience a modern way of how contracting should feel like. I have no worries referring them to current clients of mine.
Searching for a fence contractor to replace my backyard fence, two of my coworkers recommended First Class based on their professionalism, quality, and expertise. Intrigued, I contacted them.
The owner was very personable, straightforward, and efficient, and had a quotation for me within a day. I immediately had a good feeling about this company, not just because my coworkers (who had much bigger jobs done for their residences and dealt with the same individuals). I definitely appreciated how he was honest and straightforward and communicative thoughout the whole process including what has to be done.
His team came by and did a great job with tearing down the old fence and replacing the new one. They worked efficiently and expertly. It was exactly as I expected it to be, and they did what they needed to do to ensure it was a fantastic, satisfactory job.
First Class Fencing is definitely worth contacting. I would, and have, recommended them to other people. I would definitely hire them again!
Great company and crew. Feels great having the nicest fence in the community. If you want a fence built right Tyler and his crew are who to go with.
Tyler kept us informed of start dates as due to weather he was pushed off but to make up for it the guys worked through the weekend and finished on time and budget. The crew was so nice and pleasant to work with and extremely anal when it came to building the fence making sure it was straight and plum. I’ve never seen a crew take their time like these guys did making sure everything was aligned and identical.
They built the fence like it was their own and you can’t ask for anything else. The fence stands out in our community.
Cannot give them enough praise
We are very satisfied with our new fence.Work meets our expectation. Mckeehan and Jacqueline did a great job-thank you both!
Tyler was great with coming to our home and assessing the damage from a car that nailed our fence and gate. He takes great pride in the workmanship of his company and does the “job right the first time” which is also the company’s motto. The partial rebuild and gate construction are solid and were done better than by the “professionals” who tried to do the original project. I highly recommend First Class Fencing for anyone who is interested in great workmanship and a 5-year warranty. Thanks Tyler for a great job!
First Class understood what we needed, explained the options specific to our property, provided competitive pricing and got the job done in one weekend. We are so happy with this contractor!
