Red Brand Barbed Wire is expertly made using the best steel available for consistency and performance. The barbs remain strong and sharp. The double wire-reverse twist cable design creates a strong, dependable wire that won't sag and keeps barbs in place.
Red Brand makes two styles of barbs - Defender 2-point and Ruthless 4-point.
The spacing between barbs on our Defender is 4" and Ruthless features 5" spacing. To safely contain most herds, we generally recommend 4 to 5 lines of barbed wire, spaced about 10" apart.
Typically, fence posts should be installed every 8 to 12', however high tensile wire can handle longer spans due to its rigidity. When installing on uneven ground, place posts closer together, with one on the top of each rise.
Barbed Wire can be used for several applications. The most common use is to secure cattle, but it can also be used to confine swine, sheep and goats. Many times it's used in combination atop field fence or Red Brand's exclusive
King Ranch fence.

is its simplicity. The list of materials is short - just barb wire, posts, stays and staples. Red Brand's red-tipped barbs assure the highest quality steel for sharp, strong points and durable wire for

Red Brand Barbed Wire is built to safely contain your animals and protect your property. All Red Brand Barbed Wire comes in a length of 1,320 feet. That’s the equivalent of one-quarter mile, or one side of a square 40-acre parcel. Consider how many lines of wire you prefer to have on your enclosure. You’ll also need to decide if you want to use traditional low carbon wire, or high tensile. Each wire has its own set of benefits. Finally, determine the number of barbs you’ll need on your fence line.
