Until the late 1800’s, most fences were constructed from stone and wood. These fences required massive effort to build along with constant attention as weather or livestock caused damage. This led Peter Sommer to create a fence-weaving machine that allowed farmers to protect their land with lightweight, weather resilient, American made steel. Today’s farmers do not have to decide between stone or wood: today’s decision rests between low carbon or high tensile fence.
Red Brand fence products have led the way in the agricultural fencing industry for over 125 years. Whether you are new to our products or a lifelong Red Brand user, we encourage you to take a closer look at where this American-made company, and woven wire fence, got their start.

Our Roots Stretch as Far as Our Fences
We’ve been around for a long time. In 1889, Peter Sommer built the world’s very first fence weaving machine because he wanted to provide a faster and easier way to build quality, longer-lasting fence. His determination and innovation resulted in Red Brand fence. And now, generations later, Red Brand keeps Sommer’s legacy alive. We continue to produce high-quality, American-made fence products that are designed to exceed the demands of our country’s diverse agricultural communities.
With their compact size and mischievous habits, sheep and goats are difficult animals to keep safe. Red Brand offers Sheep & Goat Fence, designed for the specific needs of these animals. If you’re trying to contain a flock of sheep, goats or both, Red Brand has the solution you need.
Supporting FFA – Tomorrow’s Ag Leaders
Agriculture is more than an industry. It’s a lifestyle, a tradition, a discipline. At Red Brand, we believe in mentoring the next generation of agricultural professionals, because investing in them means investing in the future of the entire ag community. That’s why we are proud to partner with the National FFA Organization. By supporting this vital organization, we are helping to inspire and educate our future ag leaders.
A fence is only as strong as its weakest link, that’s why it’s important to know how to select the best fence knot for your application. While welded fences can be suitable for gardens and small animals, they simply aren’t tough enough for large animal corrals and containment. For that, you need a woven, or knotted, fence. All of Red Brand’s large animal fencing is made using heavy-gauge wire and knots for strength and durability.
