Are you sure they "need" concrete...?

I might use concrete for some reason, I just can't think of one.

I use quarter minus and a little concrete on top to prevent standing water.
No problems for years, works great. Agree its PITA to remove a big chunk of
concrete, two 80# sacks per hole!

post has to rot, eventually, then there's just a big hunk of concrete
to be frost heaved or a complete PITA when the post needs substitution
or removal.

But I'm no fence expert, just a former farm boy.
