Farm Fencing
The products described in this page are typically associated with the containment of farm animals. It includes electric fence wire or tape, barbed & smooth wire, woven wire (sometimes called sheep fence), poultry fence or netting and heavy gauge wire panels as well as Hi-Tensile Fence Accessories. But just because it says "farm fencing" does not mean it can't be used for other fencing projects.  Although the 'unit' price may seem high, when you do the calculation, the price per foot makes the 330' rolls of woven wire fence the most economical of all.

Woven Wire Galvanized Field Fence
Characteristics Galvanized: Gives the Field Fence great protection against corrosion. Twisted with a Hinge Joint: Gives flexibility; minimizes the deformation of the fence at the moment any animal leans against it. Tension Curve: Helps maintain fence uniformity despite extreme temperature changes. Thick Top & Bottom Wires: Top & Bottom Wires are of a greater gauge than the interior ones; giving a better structure and avoiding deformations. Graduation of Rectangular Openings: The small inferior openings prevent the entrance of wild animals that can hurt livestock. Use for Cattle, Sheep and Goat, Horses and Poultry confinement. Fence-in orchards, backyards or use for Crop protection

696-020,022

Do not use with a weed burner style of charger. Recommended for use with a low impedance type Energizer. Stocked in 14 and 16 gauge 1/4 mile spools and small spools of 16 gauge x 165'  for garden projects or repair jobs.   696-137,138,139
Poly Wire is a good fencing choice since it is more visible than traditional metal wire. It weighs only 3 pounds per 1,000 feet, making it convenient to handle, install and rewind. It can be re-used again and again and is easily tightened and repaired. Splice poly wire by tying a good, tight knot to maintain connections. No special splicer is required. Use of a poly wire tightener (PWT6) on each line and each side of the fence will allow you to maintain wire tension as needed. Poly wire is recommended for a wide variety of fencing applications, including livestock—strip or rotational grazing, and pet control. For best results, use a low-impedance fence controller to energize poly wire fences. Available in our Agway labeled yellow/black for easy visibility or all white from Dare.   696-116,117 or 696-118,119
Our electric Poly Tape provides greater visibility than other types of wire. It is frequently used for equine and livestock fencing. This white poly tape is available in 1/2 inch and 1-1/2 inch widths. Reinforced, rip-stop edges help protect the tape from wear and tear. The open-weave design of the 1-1/2-inch poly tape allows wind to pass through, reducing wear and increasing the longevity of the fence. Splicing poly tape is easy with specially designed splicer buckles. 1/2 inch wide tape uses SBS4 and the 1-1/2 inch wide tape uses SBL4. For best results, use a low-impedance fence controller to energize poly tape fences.  696-124,125
1/4" Poly rope is another excellent high visibility choice for your fence line. It is stronger than other poly wires, with stainless steel strands woven through the rope. The steel strands ensure maximum electrical energy is carried through the fence line at all times. Use splicer 691-177 to maintain a good connection. For best results, energize poly rope fence lines with a low impedance fence controller. 696-112
Electric fence netting is designed as a temporary boundary fence to subdivide pastures, to separate animals and to protect crops and feed. The netting comes ina 165 ft. long by 42 inch high roll. Posts are included in the roll so it is easy to install. The rectangular mesh created by the intersecting vertical and electrified horizontal poly wires, is the perfect size to keep goats, sheep and other similar sized animals from poking their heads through the fence. The bottom wire is not electrified so weeds and grass less than 4 inch tall don't load down the fence. The 42 inch high fence even keeps in aggressive, climbing goats.  696-103
