FAQ’s

Should I use barbed wire or electrical wire at the top of the cattle fence?

Farmers often add a line of barbed wire at the top of their boundary line.  The barbed wire acts as a deterrent to cows to lean or rub up against the wire mesh. It also increases the height so the cow cannot get their head over the top.

Can I make a cattle fence of barbed wire only?

Many farmers do construct their boundary of barbed wire only as it helps to prevent cows from leaning up against it.  However, it can also cause injury and harm to the animals.  The most common installation includes a line of barbed wire (or electrical tape) at the top and middle of the fence. 

How do I stop cows chewing through?

Determined cows can chew or push through most standard fencing, especially if they want to get to fresh grass on the other side.  Installing a strand of electrical tape at the top will help to keep the cows from testing the boundary.

Is barbed wire of electric fencing more effective?

Most customers that we speak to tend to use electrical tape with one strand at the top and one in the middle.  This will prevent the cow from testing the wire mesh.

How long will cattle fencing last?

If it is properly installed and subjected to a normal amount of abrasion you can get decades from wire fencing.
