Barb wire fence


Barbed wire for agriculture use is typically double-strand 12½-gauge, zinc-coated steel and comes in rolls of 1,320 ft. in length. High-tensile wire is made with thinner but higher-strength steel. 

Barbed wire for agricultural fencing is typically available in two varieties: soft or mild-steel wire and high-tensile. Both types are galvanized for longevity. Barbed wire is usually placed on the inner (pasture) side of the posts. Where a fence runs between two pastures livestock could either be with the wire, on the outside or on both sides of the fence.


Galvanized wire is classified into three categories; Classes I, II, and III. Class I has the thinnest coating and the shortest life expectancy. A wire with Class I coating will start showing general rusting in 8 to 10 years, while the same wire with Class III coating will show rust in 15 to 20 years.

Its greater strength makes fences longer lasting because it resists stretching and loosening better, coping with expansion and contraction caused by heat and animal pressure by stretching and relaxing within wider elastic limits.


Barbed wire fencing is a popular choice for enclosing livestock and agricultural properties. Some benefits of barbed wire fencing include:

Security: Barbed wire fencing provides a secure barrier that keeps livestock in and unwanted intruders out. The sharp barbs act as a deterrent to potential trespassers, making it more difficult for them to enter your property.


Durability: Barbed wire fencing is durable and long-lasting, making it a cost-effective choice for those looking to protect their property long-term. The strong wire and sharp barbs can withstand the elements and wear and tear.

Low-maintenance: Once installed, barbed wire fencing requires minimal maintenance. It does not require painting or staining, and only needs occasional checking and tightening to maintain its strength.


Cost-effective: Compared to other types of fencing, barbed wire fencing is relatively inexpensive. It is a great option for those on a budget who need to enclose a large area of land.

Versatility: Barbed wire fencing can be installed on various types of terrain, including hills and slopes, making it a versatile choice for property owners.

Overall, barbed wire fencing is a practical and affordable solution for property owners who want to protect their land and livestock.
