Barbed Wire Machine is designed to produce screens with single or double-stranded barbed steel wire, thermo-plated with zinc. The machine is of horizontal design, consisting of two parts, assembled together at the middle.a wire or strand of wires having small pieces of sharply pointed wire twisted around it at short intervals, used chiefly for fencing in livestock, keeping out trespassers, etc.
Barbed wire was cheaper, easier, and quicker to use than any of these other alternatives. Without fencing, livestock grazed freely, competing for fodder and water. Where working farms existed, most property was unfenced and open to foraging cattle and sheep.
