As farmers and ranchers, you have a lot riding on the well-being of your livestock. Investing in proper food and shelter is only part of your concern. Pens, corrals and feedlot areas must be safe and secure at all times. The constant pressure that large, heavy animals exert by simply pressing against a fence, especially in close quarters, can take its toll on inadequate fencing material. To preserve your valuable time, you’ll want to avoid the countless hours that could be lost to sleepless nights of worry, or making unnecessary repairs to failed enclosures. Heavy-duty steel stockade panels provide the reinforcement you need. The wire used for these panels typically ranges from lighter-weight 4 and 6 gauge to a robust ¼” diameter wire. With durable welds securing every vertical and horizontal intersection, the mesh is virtually impossible to break down. And, with a galvanized zinc coating protecting the steel, rust and corrosion don’t stand a chance. The panels won’t break when cattle, pigs or horses press against the mesh, so you can be rest assured that your animals are protected.
Selecting Stockade Panels
To determine the style that best fits the needs of your corral, feedlot or property, you must first consider what the purpose of the enclosure will serve. Pigs have different safety issues than cattle. Swine can root their way out of an enclosure, so the fence must sit low and tight to the ground. Piglets are small enough to slip through large openings, so graduated spacing near the bottom of the panel would be a good idea. The height of the fence doesn’t have to be significant. On the other hand, cattle don’t require graduated spacing at the bottom, but height is a consideration. And, containing an excited bull or a herd of cows at dinnertime requires the most durable fence available. Sheep may not exert as much pressure, but protecting them from predators requires a tight, secure mesh spacing to deter entry into the enclosure. Proper spacing for horses is important to prevent hooves or legs from getting caught in the mesh. Be sure the opening is no more than 2″x4″. In all these applications, the common features are high-quality steel, durable zinc coating and expert manufacturing. You invest time, money and resources in your animals. Be sure they are protected with the best materials your money can buy.
Red Brand Stockade Panels are unmatched in quality. The mesh is made in our own plant, so we can monitor every step of the manufacturing process to assure every panel is fabricated to our high standards.

Square Deal® Knot
Shaped like a square, this knot keeps a firm hold on both wires. Best used on hilly terrain, this knot remains strong against pressure.
Similar to a hinge, this knot allows fence to flex under pressure. Once the pressure is removed, the fence remains taut, and in shape.
Cross Lock® Knot
Our strongest knot, as it double loops around both wires. This knot affords the best protection from severe weather and large animals.
The continuous weave pattern is the safest in the industry. Close 2″x4″ spacing prevents hooves from getting caught and the springy texture flexes on impact instead of breaking.
A defensive measure against rust that coats metals with zinc. This coat of zinc helps reduce exposure to humidity, salt air, and other chemicals.
The amount of space (in inches) between each vertical wire.
High Tensile vs Low Carbon
Both materials may be available for the same fence type. Low carbon wire is thicker and a popular cost effective option that bends and flexes. High tensile is thin but strong and lightweight and won’t stretch out.
The thickness of the wire. The higher the number, the smaller the wire. (“Low gauge” refers to thicker wire, while “high gauge” wire refers to lighter weight wire.)
A technique that spaces the fence’s horizontal wires closely together at the base. Gradually, the space increases, keeping small animals out without wasting material.
Special crimps in the wire allow the fence to expand and contract due to changing weather conditions. When installing Field Fence, pull the wire so that about half of the curve is pulled out of the wire.
