2.25mm (12 gauge/.09" dia.) electrifiable polywire. A good choice when portability is needed. Often used for rotational grazing of cattle and sheep.
Virgin polyethylene monofilaments are twisted with 3 stainless steel and 3 tinned copper filaments. (Copper has the best electrical conductivity of any metal, except silver.)
IntelliTwine™ 2.25 is lightweight, has excellent elasticity, and is resistant to mildew. It’s easy to unwind/rewind onto reels—small diameter enables reels to hold up to 2000 ft.

Polyethylene works well in humid climates because it resists mildew better than polyester.

Properly energized fences last longer and require less maintenance—because animals do not crowd, rub or scratch on them. Confirm voltage is at least 3000V at the end of the fence line. Tree limbs that fall upon the fence must be removed immediately.
Spacing of line posts 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:
- 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 Gardens:
- 2-strand fence—15", 6"
For dry soil and snowy conditions, convert the fence to “positive/negative” by connecting every other strand to a galvanized stake driven into the soil.
Listed below are recommended optional components. Your particular situation may require alternative recommendations. Please call and talk to our fence consultants if there are any questions at 800-282-6631.

The cost makes it an attractive option for wildlife control in gardens—just insert posts, add insulators, then string it up. However, when compared to electric netting, it’s more work and often less reliable.

I can't believe this simple twine will stop the cows from coming up to my pool to drink. But it does!! They will stand there looking longingly at the pool but not come any closer than a couple yards. And it is so easy to install. I was concerned that I would have difficulty installing an electric fence, since I knew absolutely nothing about it, but this was a breeze. Had it up and working in just a matter of hours. What I like most is you can hardly see the twine. If it were not for the standards (I used fiber rods) you would not be able to see it from a distance. My neighbor, who has a fence with solid wire, saw mine and immediately asked where I had got it so he could change his (which is pretty ugly).

I installed this almost nine years ago, for a semi-permanent fence. I only use one strand to keep my horses where I want them. They break it from time to time when our sandy ground gets dry and they don't get enough of a shock, but the fact that it does break also makes it safe if one gets tangled up (rare). I just repair it by tying the ends with a square knot. So after nine years, rather than the predicted five, I'm thinking it's time to replace it, but even with all the knots, it's still working!

Still by far the most user friendly portable fencing made when used with reels and step in posts.
Excellent product and very durable. I use it for strip grazing sheep and it is very portable. Product is much better (more durable and lighter) than similar wire purchased from my feed store. Step-in posts can be spaced at +/- 50' without much sagging.
My second time ordering this. Works very well and is light weight so doesn't sag too much between posts.
