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.

There is a reason I now will only be getting premier twine in the future even though there are other twines a lot cheaper. But they fell apart in less than a year so they were way more expensive in the long run. Especially considering labor. The worst was some orange twine that looked OK but the wires were so bad that no electricity was getting through. I spent a while on that one looking for a contact short and finally found with a tester that there just was not any electricity getting through.

We have been very pleased with this intelitwine! We have used it for 3 years now and it is still holding up nice and strong. We have several thousand feet all across the farm with only 1 strand (barbed wire perimeter fences) and the cows have great respect for it. The only time we had continual complications with it was last summer when we were going through a bad drought and we weren't getting a good ground, so the cows weren't getting shocked. Other than that, if we do our part and keep it clean and free of limbs and such, it does it's part extremely well. We use a solar panel charger we bought through premier to keep it charged and it works great! We have temporary fence sections we put up around the farm and for the temporary fence we use the pigtail posts from premier. We have 7 young children and we all go out to move fence to rotate the cows together. Everyone has a job to do, wether picking up pigtail posts, rolling up the intelitwine on the reel, or setting up the new fence line. We love working as a team, and having good reliable equipment for the job makes it stress free and fun and easy to do. Thank you premier1 for your great products!

IntelliTwine is the best! The easiest fencing product I've every used. We are farmers by day and Internet developers by night, and I love the techie look and feel the IntelliTwine gives our farm ;-)
This product works well. It has lasted several years and is going strong. We like using several smaller spools to connect across to permanent fencing for grazing cattle. We set up a new area before taking down the old one. We follow up by mowing the tops off what wasn't eaten and then drag to break up manure. We get regrowth in as little as a week or two. This twine is easiest to use with harp clips. We use two strands to handle our herd of small calves and large cows. The conductivity is way better than stainless. Once they learn about it, they don't test it out!
We have used this for pasture fence for about 4 years now. I bought some of the cheap stuff at TSC to make some repairs. It doesn't last.
