Concrete fence posts, when properly made, give very satisfactory service, but success with them depends very much upon good design, good workmanship and good material. These facts are clearly shown in the investigation of concrete posts conducted over a long period of years by the Agricultural Engineering section of the Agricultural Experiment Station and reported in this bulletin.
The essentials of design, the requisites in materials and the methods of making are also presented and the whole subject discussed from the standpoint of service, practicability and economy, including an estimate of the cost of the various types of posts, adjusted to the present prices of material and labor.
