Repairing a woven wire fence is cheaper than replacing the fence. Woven wire fences are designed to keep predators out and livestock safely confined. Sections of woven wire can be used to patch the damaged sections, and mending the fence before the damage gets worse is the key to keeping repairs to a minimum. The fence line should be inspected for damages on a regular basis and if any are found, livestock should be inspected for injuries
1 Measure the width and length of the hole in the fence.
2 Unroll a new roll of woven wire and cut a piece that is 6 inches longer and 6 inches wider than the hole you are patching.
3 Place the new fence patch over the hole in the fence. Bend the tines and corners of the patch over the vertical and horizontal wires of the fence. Twist broken wire ends on the fence around the wires of the patch to fasten the fence to the patch. Get the patch as flush to the fence as possible.
4 Wrap 6-inch lengths of baling wire around any corners of the patch and the fence that can't be fastened to the hole using the actual broken fence wires. Twist the ends of the lengths with a pair of pliers by gripping them in the jaws and twisting them together.
Reattaching Woven Wire to the Fence Posts
5 Hold the loose wire up against the post.
6 Place a U-nail over the wire so that a point of the "U" is on each side of the wire.
7 Hammer the U-nail into the post. Repeat this process on all wires hanging away from the wood posts.
