IntelliRope® PE 6.0
Excellent low-tension conductor for both permanent and semi-permanent fences. Virgin polyethylene monofilaments are interwoven with 3 tinned copper and 3 stainless steel conductive filaments.
6mm (1/4") diameter is heavier and stronger than IntelliRope® PE 4.5, but also more expensive.
NEW! IntelliRope® BLUE PE 6.0 similar to our standard IntelliRope®, with blue filaments to enhance visibility to animals (who can see shades of blue).
Which conductor is right for you?We offer a wide-range of electrifiable ropes, twines and tapes to fit your situation. Visit this link to compare all Premier conductors.
Well suited for humid climates because mildew does not thrive on polyethylene (PE). But PE filaments are “slick”—it’s difficult to tie a knot in PE rope. Use a RopeLink or Rope Connector for connections.

Plug-in (AC) energizers are best if the fence is close to a 110V power outlet. Solar energizers may be a good option for fences far away from an outlet. A wide-impedance energizer such as the Kube 4000 is well-suited for most “4-season” fences—a fence that must work when grass stays brown or snow covers the ground.
Spacing of line posts (not more than 35 ft) must be adjusted to terrain. Always put a post at top of hills and bottom of valleys. Vary the spacing of rope strands according to type and size of animal(s), fence usage (boundary vs. subdivision) and the number of strands.
Suggested Strand Height (from ground):
- For Sheep & Goats:
- 3-strand fence—35", 24", 12"
- 5-strand fence—36", 27", 20", 13", 7"
- For Cattle:
- 1-strand fence—34"
- 2-strand fence—34", 22"
- 3-strand fence—40", 27", 15"
- For Horses:
- 2-strand fence—46", 24"
- 5-strand fence—60", 48", 36", 24", 12"
- For Deer Exclusion:
- 2-strand fence—48", 30"
- 5-strand fence—50", 40", 30", 20", 10"
- 3D anti-deer fence—inside: 48", 18"; outside: 34"

Had a young horse get scared and run through it. Took the t-post right out of the ground but did not brake the rope and did not hurt the horse. Have my whole pasture done in 6-mm rope now. Great stuff!

My neighbor's alcoholic son drove through my beautiful high-tensile fence four years ago, stopping only when he hit the foundation stone of the corn crib on my historic barn. He managed to tear up all the wood posts, and ruin the fence in the process. Over time the fencing along the creek was destroyed as well because I was never able to repair it to its original state. I had thought I would put in a proper wood horse fence and keep my smaller livestock out of the area, and then I stumbled on IntelliRope online. It was cheap (in comparison), I could use existing t-posts and insulators, although my local feed store's connectors and tighteners are not good enough--buy those from Premier when you buy your IntelliRope. I don't think it took two hours to re-string the entire pasture. I have had no problem with my horses and the deer apparently do not jump through it either. I only have two strands. I will be creating rotational grazing out of my bigger pasture whose fence has been ruined by deer and erosion of the creek bank, running first the horses and once I can get the grass short enough will run my goats in there to eat all the invasive autumn olive and multiflora rose that have grown in the few years I haven't use that pasture due to deerworm which is a serious issue in that pasture. I am a complete convert. I will be putting it in all my pastures and create more no-hassle temporary grazing areas. In the end, because it's so adaptable, the savings in feed will more than pay for the IntelliRope. I wish I'd known about this years ago. It is much better quality than the equivalent product our local corporate feed store, Tractor Supply, carries and cheaper.

Works very well. Thank you!

I purchased this product to divide a large field into several paddocks for my horses. It was simple to install and I was able to get it nice and tight without any special tools or a lot of strength. It’s been up for a couple of weeks now, horses respect it and it is safe for them. I expect that this will last at least several years, I was pleasantly surprised by how well made/durable it seems to be. Would recommend and purchase again.

IntelliRope 6 is not only stout, it withstands animals running through it occasionally! It's heavy enough to be strong, the black AND white make it easy for the animals (cattle and horses) to see it in both snow conditions and against a grass/soil background (some competitors have orange/white. Not sure animals see orange as well as the black). I've used it for YEARS for cattle and horses.
