They are made of steel and are sometimes manufactured using durable rail steel. They can be used to support various types of wire or wire mesh. The end view of the post creates an obvious T, Y, or other shape. The posts are driven into the ground with a manual post pounder. All along the post, along the spine, there are studs or nubs that prevent the barbed wire or mesh from sliding up or down the post. in Stock NOW Wooden Posts Historically throughout most of the world, domesticated livestock would roam freely and were fenced out of areas, such as gardens or fields of crops, where they were unwanted. Over time, especially where crop agriculture became dominant and population density of both humans and animals was significant, livestock owners were made to fence their animals in.The earliest fences were made of available materials, usually stone or wood , and these materials are still used for some fences today. In areas where field stones are plentiful, fences have been built up over the years as the stones are removed from fields during tillage and planting of crops. The stones were placed on the field edge to get them out of the way. In time, the piles of stones grew high and wide.In other areas, fences were constructed of timber. Log fences or split rail fencing were simple fences constructed in newly cleared areas by stacking log rails. Earth could also be used as a fence; an example was what is now called the sunken fence, or “ha-ha,” a type of wall built by digging a ditch with one steep side (which animals cannot scale) and one sloped side (where the animals roam). Hawaii 94 Type I-II Cement Cement is the key binding ingredient in ready-mix concrete. Cement is a fine powder made from limestone, clay, sand or shale. When cement is mixed with water, it can bind sand and gravel into a hard, solid mass called concrete. A replacement product for cement is fly ash, which is the fine ash remaining after coal is burned.
