Barbed Wire

Please help,
Can someone tell me how many feet an 80 rod rool is?
Also if 12 1/2 gauge would be thick enough to use as fencing around a property?

Smile Feet per roll

Hi howkul,

The 80 rod roll is, 13,200 feet. The 12.5 Gauge wire is 1.25mm od.

The answer to will the 12.5 wire be effective, depends on what you are trying to keep in or out. Even 8 gauge .8mm is the right choice with electric for large Animals

Hi Marturo,
Thanks that was very helpful.
The wire is to add on to a fence that is around 5 acres. Not to hold anything in or out just to replace some of the wire that is missing. So I think I should be just fine with the 12 1/2 gauge. If not please let me know.
Thanks again!!!!!
