From a security standpoint, what would be the best material for cattle fencing?

When security and safety are the utmost concerns in your livestock fencing, consider vinyl fencing. Vinyl fencing provides the necessary strength to contain cattle without harming them. Unlike metal fencing Vinyl fencing does not have sharp edges, does not rust and is far easier to install. You do not need special equipment to stretch vinyl fencing which installs like wood, but is pre-cut and measured for your convenience. Vinyl was once a far more expensive option than metal, but is now almost comparable and far cheaper than wood. Vinyl fencing holds up under adverse weather conditions far better than other fencing options which saves money over time.

What equipment does the sport fencing reqiure?

The sport of fencing requires quite a lot of equipment, actually. If you are simply a beginner fencer, you shouldn't need more than what fencers call "dry" equipment, meaning, a jacket, mask, glove, and weapon. None of these need be conductive, as you should not be fencing while hooked up to a scoring machine just yet. Should you consider competitive fencing, you will need more. If you are fencing epee, all you will need is a cord and an epee that can be hooked up to this cord. If you are fencing foil, you will need a foil vest and a cord, both of which must be conductive. Your foil must also be able to connect with your cord. If you are fencing sabre, you will need the most equipment. Your mask must be conductive. You must have a conductive lame, a conductive cuff, (it goes around your wrist) a blade that can connect to the body cord that you will need, and a mask cord that will connect your mask to your sabre. It is also highly recommended that, if you are fencing competitively, you will need at least two weapons, especially in epee, where they can break quite easily. Another suggested tip is that you learn how to fix your own equipment when it breaks. (believe me, it will)

Is the Sabre the sharpest fencing sword?

FencingNo weapon is technically the "sharpest" sword, since they aren't meant to do damage. But, since it doesn't have an actual point, I suppose it could be seen as the sharpest out of the three. AnswerNo weapon in fencing is sharp, as like above they aren't meant to do damage. Fencing in foil and epee is a contact sport and the action is lunge rather than slash.However, in Sabre, it is a slash motion and contact motion but the swords are not intended to injure the players. There is no "blade" but rather a long thin metal stick. Sharp?Technically none are 'sharp' however due to the nature of continually knocking the blades together; blades that are not kept in pristine condition develop metal splinters on the sides (by nature of the sports, Sabre and epee mostly) If you ran your finger down such a blade it would hurt... a lot. And metal splinters are blighters to get out, fencing blades may not be sharp, but beware holding the actual blade!

Most competitive sport in the US?

fencing would be one of the most compettetive sports in the us because unlike baseball, football, hocky, or soccer you are the whole team you play defense and offense. The people who can manage to balence this become very compettetive because if you've ever watched a bout of fencing especially from Sabre you would see just how fast they move. also for fencing you can work as a part of a team or you can fence as an individual so you learn not to rely on the people on your team because you want to be better than them so if you end up fenncing them in an individuals comppettion they won't beat you.
