Barbed wire is a type of fencing that uses sharp, pointy barbs to deter animals from crossing. It is most commonly used to secure cattle, sheep, goats, hogs and horses on ranch and farm operations.
When it was originally created back in the wild west days, barbed wire was used primarily for restraining cattle. Before barbed wire was invented in the 1860’s, cattle were pretty much free to roam the plains as they pleased, severely limiting farming and ranching operations. Barbed wire fences became very popular in the early 1900's especially in the prairies, where lumber for post was pretty rare.
Today, barbed wire fencing is much more commonly seen at the top of security chain link fencing. Generally when someone sees a barbed wire fence, they see an impassable barrier.
