I haven't, but I'd be glad to bring some wire down for him to try out.


HaHa, I bet he comes with wire and posts. He worked for TT also. TT was pleased. He had some big contracts on the horse farms in Lexington this spring.


Good to hear your putting proper fencing around those fat girls. :D
You really ought to look into farmfences 14 gauge hightensil barbwire. Especially in those trees. It's extremely strong and capable of deflecting or catching a pretty good size limb.

This is going to sound too good to be true, but here goes anyhow.
By bring wire, I mean bring a roll for free and the rest steeply discounted. It's a superior product that we are so confident in, taking a hit to get it in a contractors hands is a no brainer. The offer stands for anyone that uses a contractor, or can gather a crowd of like minded ranchers/cattlemen/farmers. I'll even buy dinner.

I need a little more time to work that out with Kevin. He is not on the crew this morning.

Describe your product. So next time I can work in your offer.

It looks like you have a 949 Bekaert there, but I can't see the knot. Looks like a pre Grippled tag, which we offer as well.
The link above is a fixed knot with retail pricing, which would be irrelevant in this situation.

The contract is nothing but a one sheet estimate. Kevin provides materials. I don't remember what the cost per foot was.

Appears to be 949-12 fixed knot. I understand that Kevin would provide the materials, but they still cost. Tornado is the only manufacturer that puts contractors ahead of retailers in terms of supply and cost. The quality difference between Tornado and Bekaert is quite noticeable. Pass it along to him if you want, and I'll get some in his hands to try along with sending a package your way. :D

Not that it's for everyone or every situation, but this is my 9 year old between posts spaced 50' climbing the fence. You can space your posts farther in most situations to make it more cost effective......If you use the right wire.

Just talked to Kevin. I told him you might be calling him. He would be happy to try your wire.

Callmefence: that barn is coming down this fall if it does not fall of its own weight.

Call Jeff Slaven at 540-908-0421 Cattlemens Supply he sells fence supplies and does a lot of fence work.
Call Lee Brown at 706-788-2498 Southland Power Fence and Equipment. I know he runs 4 fence crews full time.
These guy's are dealers themselves, but it might be worth your time. IDK
