Fact of the Day: Cattle Wire

  3. I always thought of barbed wire being used for cattle. People have wire clippers and aren't stopped.

    I wonder would it be a good idea of use barbed wire to fence in Turnip Top in that big house on Penn. Avenue.

  5. Where I lived on the Canadian prairie, the only fence we ever knew was barb wire. We have huge distances to fence.
