Cattle Fencing from Tornado Wire

View full range of cattle fencing Contact us

Due to their size and nature of cattle, fencing them can be particularly challenging.

We would recommend using a High Tensile woven wire fence with solid vertical wires. Both Tornado’s Torus and Titan ranges are “stiff-stay” fences with those solid vertical wires. A Torus or Titan net used in conjunction with either two strands of barbed wire, or two strands of plain wire provides an increased height of the fence that helps resist downward pressure from cattle leaning over the fence. In high pressure applications we would recommend using a fence net in conjunction with an electric fencing line.

Alternatively for cattle only, multiple strands of Tornado’s Titan High Tensile barbed wire can be used in low pressure applications for example along side a well-established hedge.

Tornado Fencing ticks all the boxes: Robust, Reliable, Rapid and Reasonable.

Points to consider

High Tensile Cattle Fencing

Farmers know that effective grassland management requires strong and reliable fencing that will last for decades. Modern fencing solutions use high tensile wire that can be strained tighter than mild steel. There are numerous benefits to using high tensile wire which include:

Low maintenance stock fencing

Tornado Torus stock fencing is strained tight and stays tight, meaning minimal maintenance is required.

  • Does not Stretch with weathering, so does not need to be retightened annually
  • Whilst High Tensile fencing does require a different technique to erect than mild steel, it is no more difficult. Most farms have access to a post driver that can easily drive in strainers to the required depth. Bending high tensile wires and tying off is simple when using the correct technique.

    Low Maintenance

    Tornado High Tensile Fencing stays tight and does not stretch like mild steel, leaving you with one less job on your list!

    Is High Tensile Fencing Expensive?

    High Tensile mesh rolls may be more expensive to buy, but this is more than compensated for by the reduced numbers of posts and labour required.

    Mild Steel Stock Fencing

    Mild Steel Fencing

    Mild steel stock-proof fencing was traditionally used by farmers to contain their livestock. Mild Steel has largely been replaced by High Tensile wire. Tornado would not recommend using mild steel fencing for cattle.
