Red Brand fence, manufactured by Keystone Steel & Wire in Peoria, Illinois, has been a long-time supporter of FFA. As the leading manufacturer of agricultural fencing in the country, the relationship is a natural fit. When Red Brand joined forces with the National FFA in 1947, they saw an opportunity to support the country's future ag leaders in a variety of ways. Almost 70 years later, the enduring relationship has fostered many unique programs that encourage and support FFA at all levels. One of the most exciting new programs introduced recently is intended for the classroom. Red Brand has developed a curriculum called Fence 101. This 'Curriculum in a Box' was created to give advisors a simple, unique way to educate students on the importance of correct selection, calculation and installation of agricultural fencing for the wide variety of needs they may encounter as future farmers, property owners and ag business leaders. 


This exclusive program has been carefully and thoughtfully developed to engage a high school audience. Each of the five lessons is approximately 50 minutes in length, making the program manageable for most classroom situations. And, no matter the background or level of expertise in the area of fencing, advisors and chapter leaders find this program easy and fun to teach. The Fence 101 Curriculum Kit includes everything needed to present the program, including a comprehensive instructor's manual, PowerPoint presentations with videos, actual fence samples and files for printable student notes and quizzes. For students, the kit contains Quick Reference Guides, Fence Wrapping Tools, Fence 101 Stickers and Completion Certificates.
