Where do I get American-made poultry fence?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread

Does anyone know where I can get American-made poultry fencing? There was a time in America when the 2" x 2" x 36" galvanized fencing fabric,which you could buy at the local hardware or farm store, would last 20 - 30 years. The stuff I find now, made in China, lasts maybe five years if you're lucky. It usually starts to rust in 1 -2 years and has to be replaced after 3 - 4 years. I am looking mainly for the name of a manufacturer, not a specific retailer. If you have had good luck with a specific brandname, please let me know.

And it use to be heavy duty too! I have had the same question on my mind for a long time, I have not seen any good poultry netting for 30 years. I now use what is called Dog & Garden fence with a 2x2 square opening, it is woven wire and comes in 6' & 8' high rolls, shorter too I suppose. Nearly everything is made in china now.

The fence Hendo mentioned I just bought at Quality farm and fleet for 33.00 for 100 feet

At Chore Time Equipment Co. in Decatur, AL. They make a welded wire mesh of 1" x 2" and it is galvanized after it is welded. The rolls come in various heights and usually 200 feet long. Phone number is 256-353-1521

I can't get triple-galvanized field fence here. The only triple galvanized anything you can get around here is barbed wire. (Folks around here mostly run beef cattle, and some dairy)

I checked into special ordering the stuff, and it turns out it'll be cheaper for me to drive to Iowa and buy direct from Premiere. They sell all sorts of fencing, I highly recommend.
