A fence is a barrier erected to confine or exclude people or animals, to show clear perimeters, or to please the eye. Timber, earth, stone and metal are widely used to create fences. In addition, fences consisting of live bushes have been made in many places, such as the hedges of Great Britain and continental Europe, and the cactus fences of Latin America. In country which has plentiful timber, such as colonial and 19th-century North America, many designs of timber fence were developed, such as the split rail laid zigzag, the post rail, and the picket. On the east European Plain and in the western United States, fences of turf were erected that often endured for years in the absence of heavy rainfall.
Wire, the prevailing modern fencing material, was first used in the mid-19th century, with the development of methods of mass production. Woven wire fences, affixed to wood, steel, or concrete posts, proved cost-effective and durable, as wood posts can be treated with preservative). The invention of barbed-wire in the 1860s and of a machine for its manufacture in 1874 opened up the world to effective fencing of cattle (see Barbed Wire).
Electrified fences, frequently only a single strand of barbed wire, are sometimes used for temporary confinement of animals. A mild shock is felt by the animal at intervals of several seconds as it is in contact with the wire.
