Fence Flags
After years of tying ribbons and other paraphernalia onto electric fence wire to make it easier for livestock to spot, we finally came up with the idea for "Fence Flags", a highly visible clip-on plastictag that's easy to install and stays put thanks to a patented stainless steel spring clip. We raise purebred Sim-mental beef and had trouble with animals going right through the fence when they couldn't see it.
The oval-shaped white flags are 5 by 3 in. and have a 90? bend in the middle that makes them visible from all directions. The holes they hang from are off center so the flags rock back and forth easily in even a slight breeze. The spring clip clamps tightly onto the wire and won't slide back and forth.
We sell the flags through dealers and distributors. Most farm supply stores sell them for around $3.00 a dozen. (Donald J. Kaleta, Mom & Pop Products Co., 4979 Ireland Rd., P.O. Box 45, Rome, Ohio 44085 ph 216 474-4120)
