Option 2 - High-Tensile Woven Wire combined with HT Smooth

A multi-species fence that works well as either a boundary or subdivision fence. It will contain cattle (all ages/types), sheep, pigs, llama and goats through all seasons, climates and on all soils. This design is very low maintenance permanent fence.

It has 2 HT smooth wires above 32" tall HT woven wire. Total height 45 to 48 in. Energize an upper wire or an offset wire. Place woven and HT smooth wires on the ungrazed side of posts and, if possible, all energized wires on the grazed side at nose height of the primary animals to be fenced.

Use wood post end and corner brace assemblies. Space wood or steel line posts up to 25 ft. For corrals or lanes, reduce the spacing to 15 ft. (Terrain a determining factor for post spacing.)

Note: This is an excellent fence for sites in which one side will not be grazed and fences won't be checked for long periods.


This is high compared to other designs--but it's not that high for a reliable multi-species fence that should last more than 50 years in many climates.

Why GreenCote wire?

  • More attractive than others.
  • Makes a statement that the owner is innovative and progressive.
  • Blends into the background.
  • Resists rust twice as long as other wires.

Why do we include an energized wire in such a physically strong fence?

  • Keeps cattle, horses from riding and scratching the fence.
  • Provides a power source to electrify subdivision fences.

You also need an energizer for this fence. Please refer to the Energizer section of our website to determine your needs.

NOTE: Dry conditions and wintertime usages—may reduce the effectiveness of electric fencing.
