Industry-standard for cedar privacy fencing is #2 or better grade. Pressure-treated yellow pine #2 grade is used for the posts, rotboards, and rails. "Cedar fencing" usually only referring to the parts of the fence such as the pickets, cap rail, and fascia trim and those are #2 or better grade as well. There are other grades but not common and usually a lot more costly than #2 grade. Since #2 grade is expensive enough as it is these days it's even less common to deviate from that.
It is always recommended to seal and stain your cedar fence after it's been installed especially if you plan on living at the same place for a long time and want it to last longer without having to think of replacing again as soon. There are many different stain products and types of stain. There are water based and oil based stains. And there are transparent, semi-transparent, semi-solid, and solid stains. Semi-solid and solid stains are more like paint and hide the grain of the wood so transparent and semi-transparent are mostly recommended. Transparent stain keeps the current color in place. Semi-transparent adds some color while being transparent enough to clearly see the grain of the wood.
Cedar fences are most durable when done with galvanized steel posts, posts set deep enough with enough concrete, and the wood is stained to delay the aging process.
