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.)
If you find yourself shopping for new fencing in the yard of your local Red Brand dealer, the rolls of fence before you can all look very similar. Except for the obvious height differences, the variety of red-topped wire may seem a bit overwhelming.
However, by referring to the style number found on each roll of fence, you should have all the info you need to help make your selection. These numbers are a quick and easy way to identify the unique features of that particular roll of fence. No need to count wires or bring your own measuring tape to the farm or hardware store – the style number will indicate nearly everything you need to know.
