Barbed wire has been the standard of cattle fences for years, now, there is a new cattle fence solution for ranchers and property owners: High tensile fixed knot steel mesh fencing, designed to provide greater security and long service life. This means lower overall long-term expenses in terms of replacement costs and maintenance.
Another benefit of high tensile mesh over the barbed wire is that feral hogs cannot make it through or destroy this style of fence, preserving your fields for hay and grazing without the constant damage that hogs inflict.
With a wide range of height and mesh pattern options, Tejas Ranch & Game Fence can install the livestock fence that best suits your needs. It is assured of providing you with a cattle fence with many years of service life.
We offer additional features, such as predator control barriers and water gap installation, allowing you to customize your cattle fence to suit virtually any requirement.
For the ultimate steel mesh protection in severe environments such as coastal areas, we offer a zinc-aluminum coating that is highly resistant to corrosion.. This Class 40 Zinc-Aluminum coating provides the highest degree of protection for high-tensile steel mesh.
The steel mesh is designed to withstand stresses without losing shape or strength. The crimps in the horizontal wires absorb pressure – both during installation and from animals.
High-tensile fixed-knot cattle fences installed by Tejas Ranch & Game Fence are excellent for livestock control and outperform traditional barbed wire and hinged-knot fences in every application with superior durability, flexibility, and safety. Even more important, high-tensile fixed-knot fences last longer than other types of fencing, which translates into a superior livestock management tool that saves landowners time and money spent on maintenance, repairs, and replacement.
Cattle are unable to put their heads through the wire mesh pattern or step through a gap in the fence and become entangled. This type of fencing is especially advantageous for cow-calf operations because of its inherent safety. In addition, the material causes less hide damage to animals who rub against it.
Tejas Ranch & Game Fence team members can choose from a wide variety of height and mesh patterns to install the cattle fence that best suits your needs for years to come.
Our recommended cattle fence material has 9 horizontal wires and stands 49 inches tall. Vertical spacing is available in 12-inch, 6-inch, and 3-inch lengths. For boundary and pasture fences with low pressure or ones that run over long distances, we offer the 12-inch vertical spacing. This spacing is more cost-effective for long-run fence lines. For internal or corral use, we recommend 6-inch vertical spacing for greater strength. In higher pressure areas, 3-inch spacing provides maximum strength and animal control.
We also offer predator control barriers and water gap installation, which enable team members to customize fences to suit virtually any terrain or need.
For the ultimate steel mesh, we can provide a profile with a zinc-aluminum coating that is highly resistant to flaking, cracking, splitting, and separating. This Class 40 Zinc-Aluminum coating provides the highest degree of protection available for high-tensile steel mesh.
