The Class 3 galvanized coating on our fence materials is proven to last three times longer than Class 1.
Wild pigs or hogs are a significant threat to property owners throughout Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana. A recent estimate puts the population of these feral hogs at 2.6 million across the state of Texas alone.
According to the Texas Department of Parks & Wildlife:
Feral hogs compete directly with livestock as well as game and non-game wildlife species for food. However, the main damage caused to livestock and wildlife is indirect destruction of habitat and agriculture commodities. Rooting and trampling activity for food can damage agricultural crops, fields, and livestock feeding and watering facilities. Often wildlife feeders are damaged or destroyed. They also destabilize wetland areas, springs, creeks and tanks by excessive rooting and wallowing. In addition to habitat destruction and alteration, hogs can destroy forestry plantings and damage trees. While not active predators, wild hogs may prey on fawns, young lambs, and kid goats. If the opportunity arises, they may also destroy and consume eggs of ground nesting birds, such as turkeys and quail.
Tejas Ranch & Game Fence has the capabilities of constructing a new hog-proof fence barrier for your property, or retrofitting an existing fence with high-tensile steel mesh specifically designed to protect your property from the problem of feral hog damage.
For the ultimate steel mesh hog-proof fence protection, we offer a profile featuring a zinc-aluminum coating that is highly resistant to flaking, cracking, splitting or separating from the steel. This Class 40 Zinc-Aluminum coating is the highest degree of protection available for high-tensile steel mesh and presents a formidable resistance to feral hogs.

The fixed knot design of our fence mesh provides greater strength and performance than hinge-joint mesh.
The varying mesh spacings, with smaller “holes” toward the bottom of the fence, helps ensure greater security from unwanted animals while maintaining an affordable fence solution.
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.
Hog Proof Fence Information
Wild pigs or hogs are a significant threat to property owners throughout Texas, Oklahoma, and Louisiana. A recent estimate puts the population of these feral hogs at 2.6 million in Texas alone.
As Texas Parks & Wildlife notes, feral hogs compete directly with livestock, as well as game and non-game wildlife species for food. They damage wildlife habitat, pastures, crops and fields, and watering sites. Their rooting, trampling, and wallowing behavior can destabilize wetlands, springs, creeks, and riparian areas. Additionally, these hogs can destroy forestry plantings and damage trees. And though they are not active predators, according to Texas Parks & Wildlife, feral hogs occasionally prey on fawns, young lambs, and kid goats and feast on the eggs of ground-nesting birds, such as turkeys and quails.
Tejas Ranch & Game Fence can build new hog-proof fence barriers or retrofit existing fence with high-tensile fixed-knot fencing. In addition to professional construction, selecting the proper fence material is key as well. For feral hog barriers, we highly recommend high-tensile fixed-knot fencing.
Performance of Tejas Fixed-Knot Hog-Proof Fences
- Fixed knots do not move or loosen with pressure from stock. Hogs can’t “wallow” a hole in the fence fabric.
- Heavy-duty Class 3 galvanized wire adds strength.
- A 20-year warranty protects the investment.
- Fences are stronger than 9-gauge hinge-joint field fencing.
- Fixed-knot, hog-proof fences last three times longer than traditional low-tensile horse fencing.
- Vertical stays give the fence more rigidity.
- Fences can be built with up to 25-foot post spacing.
- Construction stays tight with less than 1% elongation over the service life of the fence.
- Deep crimping creates memory for optimal flexibility to absorb impact, severe weather, and climate change.
- The fencing does not sag or squash down as other fence materials may.
- Fencing is largely maintenance free.
Hog Fence Costs
Building or replacing a ranch fence comes down to value versus cost. High-tensile fixed-knot fences provide significant value, as detailed above. And over the long-term, these superior fencing materials cost no more to install and maintain than barbed wire. The cost to install fixed-knot fence is virtually the same as barbed wire because of the 25-foot post spacing, which requires fewer end posts. After installation, the fixed-knot fence is virtually maintenance free, which translates into significant savings of both time and money. The service life is also more than three times longer than that of barbed wire and hinge-joint fencing.
Selecting Fence Specs for your Application
With a wide range of height and mesh pattern options, Tejas Ranch & Game Fence can design and install a long-lasting, hog-proof fence that best suits your needs.
Our recommended hog-proof fence material has 7 horizontal wires and stands 35 inches tall Vertical spacing can be 6 inches or 3 inches. For perimeter, pasture, interior, cross, and feral hog-exclusion fences with low pressure or over long distances, we offer economical 6-inch vertical spacing. This spacing option is more cost effective for long-run fence lines. For large whitetail breeding areas or pens, we recommend a 3-inch vertical spacing for greater strength and security to protect the deer from hogs and predators.
We offer additional features, including predator control barriers and water gap installations, to customize feral hog fences for almost any environment or need.
Predator control options include an apron fence at the base of the fixed-knot fence to eliminate digging, tunneling, and wallowing <> and electric wire barriers at the base and/or top of the fence.

For the ultimate steel mesh, we offer 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.
