Selecting the right material and post spacing for your fence is almost as important as choosing the proper fence style. Check out our blog “The Right Post: The Foundation for a Solid, Long-Lasting Fence” to learn more about post possibilities.

For a multi-purpose, cost-effective fencing option, consider Red Brand smooth wire. These single wire strands have no barbs, and are not woven to other wires. Because its available in lengths ranging from 170 feet to nearly ten thousand feet, our multi-use smooth wire can handle a variety of tasks. Whether you want to fence in a new pasture, supplement your current fence, or make household chores easier, having a roll of single strand wire is never a bad idea.
When is red actually green? Each year, our steel plant in Peoria, Illinois, recycles roughly 800,000 tons of scrap metal. That’s 1,600,000,000 pounds of appliances, automobiles, and other steel products. Instead of slowly decomposing in a junkyard somewhere, the steel we recycle has new life on farms, ranches, and beyond.
Being American made for over 125 years has weaved both experience and heritage into every roll of fence we make. From our humble beginnings in a shed to today’s industry-leading factory, our iconic red top fence has served generations of farmers. Through World Wars, the Great Depression, and even recent agricultural and economic challenges, Red Brand products have been standing guard on American farms and ranches since 1889.
Throughout our history, the strength and durability of our fences have rarely been questioned. However, one of our most common queries is, “Why the red top?” To answer this question, we have to look back almost a hundred years, to the early 1900’s.
