    Anybody In The Corral Business?

    I was wanting to ask anybody who may know about the pipe fencing and corral business. I haven't seen a whole lot of people offering this service around here although there are a lot of corrals around. I believe there is a large demand for it and was wanting to ask how to market it? How do you market your services? Any pointers on starting a pipe fencing company?

    Most pipe fence is done with used drill stem. New pipe would cost a fortune. I don't know if many people would hire it out. I think most would do it themselves or have a friend who's a welder help them. To hire a rig up here is close to $100/hr. A lot of corral equipment is pre built and just installed at the farm.

    Yep most people use suckerrod, but I have a neighbor who is starting to use fiberglass suckerrod for replacement on barb wire says it is the same price easy to replace and lasts forever.

    I built corrals out of 2-3/8" pipe at my place. It isn't cheap and is a ton of work. I bought new reject pipe. You don't want to use used pipe. Most of it is used until it is not usable anymore and that means it has pin holes and rust issues due to the saltwater that goes through it. My new reject pipe cost me around $35 a joint (31 foot) Used pipe ain't much cheaper.

    There are a ton of modular corral systems these days that are really nice and so much cheaper than building. They even have ones that all fit on a special trailer and can be moved from place to place which is really useful to people running cattle on wheat pasture like they do in Kansas. Check this out
