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.
Dogwood Farm from Kentucky
We have been using managed grazing techniques since 1989, moving cattle daily to fresh pasture, and back-fencing to allow grazed paddocks to fully recover. IntelliTwine is by far the most highly conductive and easiest to use of any polywire that we have ever used, and we have tried many other kinds. (If it will stop sheep, it will stop our Hereford cattle.) In addition, after being trained, cattle recognize it and avoid it, making even the economical 3 cent per foot product highly effective.

Love the twine for rotationally grazing cows. Perfect for daily moves. Much better quality than competitors!
Stanley & Rache R from Nebraska
We have tried both IntelliRope and IntelliTwine and have found the IntelliTwine is easier to move since more fits on a spool. The conductors are very good in the twine. We make our own stainless springs to connect the twine like are available for the rope. Much easier to make splices and connect and disconnect then knots. Not sure why they are not sold here.
The rope is more visible, and may last longer, but also costs more. Both are very good products.

I have tried other twines but this is the best I have found.

In conjunction with racoon netting, I ran a single-strand like across the top of a wooden fence to keep furry climbers away from my grapevines. Simple to use and it works like a charm.
