Redbrand Wildlife fence is a great choice to keep unwanted critters  out. That is the main goal for fencing for Alpaca and Dog owners, since  they do not challenge the fence like cattle do. It is available in 48  inch, 60 inch, and 72 inch heights and is also referred to as Redbrand  Deer and Orchard fence.

Alpaca Fencing Alternatives.

Some  Alpaca owners prefer two by four inch “no climb” horse fence sixty  inches tall. That is very expensive heavy wire to install when you  figure in the larger posts needed to secure it. With the additional cost  of the fencing and the heavy duty posts you will need to handle it,  the installed total price might be over two times the cost of Redbrand  Wildlife fencing. Some Alpaca owners also use two  by four welded wire  fencing. It is more comparable in cost to wildlife fencing, but welded  wire fence  does not stretch at all, so it is very difficult to cross  low areas or hills where as Redbrand wildlife fence can be stretched  across those easily. The welds on welded wire eventually rust as well.

Deer  & Orchard Fence uses the Monarch® Knot as a hinge under pressure,  allowing the fence to bounce back into shape, and it also  resists  weathering as well as wear and tear due to the galvanized wire . This  fence comes with one inch spacing near the bottom, gradually increasing  to four inches apart at the top. Rabbits or groundhogs will not get  through the lower wires, and the five or six foot height should deter  coyotes. Yes, I know groundhogs can burrow under, but that goes with any  fence!

It comes in handy 165 foot long rolls, weighing around  100 pounds each. I installed some five foot tall wildlife fence, it is  part # 2360-6-14 ½ it was very easy to work with. With rolls weighing  only 100 pounds,  anyone can handle them.

I used four  inch diameter treated wooden posts and 6.5 foot tall TEE posts from  Southern States. I used six inch diameter treated posts for my H braces  at either end and about every 80 feet.

Redbrand deer and  Orchard wildlife fence is too lightweight for horses or cattle to rub up  against. If you did use this is in one area of a pasture , you  should add a strand or two of electric wire inside the fence to keep  cattle from pushing on this wire.

It is not as  easy to find as walking into a Lowes or Tractor Supply, but you can  purchase it. On the internet, I see it listed by True Value hardware,  and some other fencing suppliers and you should be able to order from  the redbrandstore website. The ease of installation and lower cost of  this fencing will make up for a little delay, you will likely need to  order it and wait for delivery.

Close Up of Wires

 Close up of the lower wires to show you how close they are, about 1" at the very bottom. 

Low Wire needs

Because the lower wires are so close, you need a pipe to step on and hold that low wire down while you staple.
