Braided mega wire has nine stainless steel strands for excellent conductivity, according to Twin Mountain Fence Co., San Angelo, TX. Its braided poly-ethylene filament gives lower resistance than tapes or standard wire.
Excellent for long runs of fence, it won't loop or tangle and wraps neatly on the reel. Its superior strength gives it greater durability and a longer field life.

Range Master, a fence charger from Parker McCrory, Kansas City, MO, uses a digital meter to show voltage — within 100 volts — on the fence. Its ultra-high visible, multi-colored LED lights show fence condition, and an audible and visible shut-down alarm sounds if it malfunctions.
The charger offers over 12.5 joules of shock output power and computer-controlled circuitry. It charges over 100 miles of fence.

The Dual-Wire system eliminates fencing problems due to poor grounding, according to Fi-Shock, Inc., Knoxville, TN. The Dual-Wire system incorporates the hot wire and the ground wire in one insulator. Wires are spaced optimally to impart the full shock of the energizer to an animal.
Its Dual-Wire Fence Light attaches between the two fence wires to show the fence is operating properly. It also provides spacers that attach between fence posts and high-visibility yellow warning signs. Insulators install easily onto steel T-posts or wood posts.
The Pivotal Post, from Pivotal Fencing Systems, Yuma, CO, has been redesigned to meet government practice specifications fence code 382. It features a solid fiberglass post with a UV-resistant coating, a cast aluminum base and heavy-duty spring to keep wires in place.
With the post, producers can manage livestock herds and irrigate crops at the same time. Sprinklers can cross fences without special gates or the producer having to let wires down.
The portable pasture schooner from Cameo Fencing, Hammond, NY, features skis (see insert) that make it easy for an ATV, pickup truck or tractor to pull the shelter from pasture to pasture.
A permanent electric rail system that eliminates the need for a separate hot wire for electrified systems also significantly reduces installation time. That's according to its manufacturer, Centaur HTP Fencing Systems, Muscle Shoals, AL.
Called Hot-Site, the 1" rail is highly visible, permanent and available in 500' rolls complete with insulator brackets. It has a minimum break strength of 2,000 lbs/rail.
The StirrupPost, a new step-in post from Premier, Washington, IA, offers a sure-grip base. Force can be applied on the top of the steel spike, driving the post even into dry or frozen soil. The spike is pointed, galvanized, 5/26" in diameter and 6" long.
The product also provides conductor clips to be used with ¼" rope, twine or tape. Posts are available in 37" or 54" heights.
The Kiwi Gate Latch provides easy, one-hand gate operation — even on horseback or with gloves on, according to Modern Farm.
The rugged latch, to be used with wood or metal gates, won't freeze and is lockable. It consists of a ½" steel latch, 8" of 3/16" chain and a 4" staple.
The Wireless Motion Drive Alert lets you know when vehicles, pedestrians or large animals approach from up to 1,000' away.
From Modern Farm, the system includes a wireless transmitter and a wireless receiver. It can be installed quickly and simply, with no wires to bury or electrical hookups to add. The battery-powered transmitter senses motion and alerts the wireless receiver. A nine-volt transmitter battery lasts about 12 months. The receiver can be plugged into any 120-volt outlet up to 1,000' away.
Ringlock Fence, a livestock fencing widely used in Australia, is now available in the U.S. from Canyon Fence Co., Calgary, Alberta. This strong, durable fencing features a wire knot that allows wires to absorb animal pressure, then return to their original position.
The product is available in different high-tensile-wire types, including LifeWire, which is coated with zinc and aluminum for improved durability. Sinclair Taylor, the company manufacturing the fence in North America, plans to introduce an electric version of the fence.
