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.

So, how far apart should line posts be set?
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.
While most fence projects are built around containing animals for safety, keeping wild pests out is an equally important factor. Most wooden fence boards are horizontally spaced a foot apart, providing more than enough room for pesky groundhogs and possums to slip through.
If you know Red Brand, then you know we have a specific fence design for any project.

With so many options, choosing the right fence could make anybody’s head spin. When comparing fences, the best place to start is to determine mesh design.
While there is no such thing as overprotection, our thickest wire is probably not necessary to keep rabbits out of the garden. On the other hand, our Stockade Panels are welded with quarter inch wire to keep bulky swine and other large animals safely contained. Depending on the style, Red Brand fence is built using 10 different thicknesses of wire. Read on to learn which thickness, or gauge, is best for your fencing project.
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?
From dogs to horses to herds of cattle, Red Brand has a fence that will safely contain your animals for years to come. To maximize your fence’s strength, proper installation is crucial. The easiest way to assure both longevity and durability is to install your fence on the proper side of the fence posts. By doing this, you are keeping your animals safer and your fence stronger.
Fencing styles are as diverse as the applications they serve. That’s why Red Brand offers a number of different fence products. From protecting property with Deer & Orchard fence, to keeping pets safe with Yard, Garden & Kennel fence, to corralling a herd of cattle with Field Fencing or Barbed Wire, our extensive variety makes it possible to find the right product for your specific need. If you’re unsure about which product is right for your project, Red Brand has a handy Ag Fence Selection Chart to help you choose.
Your fence may be one of your biggest property investments this year, so be sure it’s properly installed by using the correct materials and installation techniques. We can’t stress enough that fencing is only as strong as the fence post it’s secured to. The best fencing product in the world can’t protect your livestock if it can’t withstand animal pressure and the elements.
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.
