Goldfoot Springsteel Pigtail Posts
Galvanized springsteel post from Strainrite® Fencing Systems. Thick plastic insulation resists UV exposure. Jumps back into position if a person or animal bends the post over. The 40.5" post offers added height to contain goats, or jumpy cattle and sheep.
Holds one conductor. If additional conductors are needed, clip-on insulators may be added.

Posts work great for putting up a temporary fence for rotational grazing. Fast and easy to install.

Best step-in post I have found.

I have super rocky soil and these posts were able to hold up.

Great product! I have replaced all the plastic posts purchased from the local farm store with these. The plastic ones were about 50 cents less, but most didn't last an entire season. I am going into year two with some of these pigtail posts and they are as good as the first time I used them. They are much easier to sink into the ground also. I highly recommend these posts, they work very well with rotational grazing.

Goldfoot Springsteel Pigtail Post, 40.5" is an excellent replacement for my previous step-in plastic posts. It is sturdier, more stable. presents less wind resistance, and high enough (though not quite as high as plastic posts) to deter deer. If you have a balance problem or hard ground, you can carefully use a hammer on the right-angle second spike. The snap-on clips are easy to use and allow endless height variations. Great product!
