With hundreds of different options, selecting the right fence for your farm can be a challenge. An easy way to start a fence project is to understand fence basics by talking to a local Red Brand dealer. Speaking face to face with an experienced representative will ensure that your animals are contained with the best fence possible. They can even provide helpful tips if you are installing your own fence, or point you towards the closest Red Brand Certified Fence Installer. (Check out our previous blog, “A Red Brand Certified Fence Installer Assures Quality Installations” to learn more about our CFI program.)
Sturdy rolls of woven wire and thick timber posts are clear components to any quality fence project. But an often-overlooked element to a successful fence installation is the staple. Properly installing quality staples will increase your fence’s durability against pressure from the outside.
Versatility is not the most common way to describe fence, but Red Brand customers continue to find new and innovative uses for our wire. Ranging from firewood bundled with Smooth Wire, to show arenas fenced-in by low profile Yard, Garden, & Kennel, the possibilities for Red Brand extend beyond traditional animal containment. One of the more surprising uses of poultry-style netting took Red Brand off the land and into the water.
They say that rust never sleeps. So how, then, can you? If you have livestock, orchards or pets, it’s likely you rely on fencing to protect them. You want to be rest assured that your fence will keep your animals and property safe. Of course, proper installation of your wire fence is key. But, when your fence begins to rust, what happens to its integrity?
At Red Brand, we offer the agriculture industry’s leading fencing products. It’s not only because of our superior American-made steel. It’s also because of the construction of the fence itself. Red Brand field fence is considered the most reliable confinement option for cattle, hogs and other large animals. Our strong, yet flexible fencing holds up to the pressure of corralling large herds. Another important feature is the special crimp that expands and contracts under extreme weather changes. The result is a reliable enclosure in even the most severe conditions.
Wood fences can rot. Stone fences can crack. And wire fences? They can rust. At Red Brand, we regard fencing as an investment. You work hard to assure your animals’ safety. To protect what’s important to you, we manufacture our fences to stand strong against all types of weather conditions. However, even a light rainfall can harm steel at the atomic level. Due to oxygen molecules that produce iron oxide, rust will appear on exposed steel. That’s why all Red Brand fence features galvanization for lasting performance.
