I've been using t-posts and electric fence with plastic insulators the past few years to get all my pastures fenced in a hurry (I do use wood corner and end posts).
The plan was to do that to keep price and time down, and eventually re-fence "at my leisure" with more permanent stuff.
The problem I see now is that the plastic t-post insulators don't last very long. Seems like some break right away when the weather gets cold and most break within a year or at most two.
I've never seen any alternatives for t-posts...was thinking of using the ceramic "nail in" kind, and somehow wiring them to the t-posts.
Does anybody have a better idea? I just want to get rid of the plastic so I'm not always replacing them--it's gonna be a few more years before I have enough leisure and money to re-do the entire string of fence!
thanks for any advice!
