To whom this may concern: I bought of The Little Traveler Fence Machine company one of their machines, and have built 20 rods of fine galvanized arch top-fence. This >s a beautiful and very durable fence, and very cheap. You can use up all your old barb wire or any old material on the farm and make the beat of hog fence.
