Kencove and Gripple Announce Exclusive Partnership

Gripple, Inc, worldwide manufacturer of Gripple tensioners and tools, and Kencove Farm Fence are excited to announce a partnership that makes Kencove one of only two master distributors of Gripple products in the United States.

Gripples’ cutting edge products paired with Kencove’s warehouse locations and shipping efficiency allows Gripple to streamline distribution and delivery times.

Current Gripple customers will still enjoy the same low pricing, but with five warehouses throughout the United States and a staff of product specialists, customers can count on Kencove to have the product in stock, to ship it the next day, and to provide customer service for orders, troubleshooting, and installation.

“Gripple has had a great relationship with Kencove for many years, and we are proud to expand on this partnership. Their nationwide reach and emphasis on customer service makes them a perfect choice for exclusive distribution,” said Payne Hall, Gripple’s Business Development Manager.

“Kencove has sold Gripple products for many, many years, and it’s been amazing to see the market grow and expand. We are very excited to continue the growth of this product through our nationwide distribution. We are committed to providing the best prices and customer service to current Gripple customers,” explained John McConnell, Kencove General Manager.

The partnership officially began on January 1, 2019. Kencove will continue to stock a full line of Gripple tensioners and tensioning tools, while adding bulk packs of tensioners – bags of 20 and boxes of 200 – for contractors, retailers, and fence installers.

For more information, or to place orders, customers can contact Gilbert Woodley, Kencove product specialist at 1-800-536-2683 or email [email protected]

Volts vs Amps and Other Electric Fence Lingo

The other day I got a call from a farmer. For the sake of this blog, we’ll call him Bob. Bob wanted to know if his energizer was doing its job. He told me he was reading 7,000 volts on his fence and had an amp reading of 2. Bob wasn’t sure if that meant his fence was working well or not. I know enough about electric fences to know 7,000 volts is a great reading for cattle. In fact, anything between 5,000-9,000 volts is ideal, but your cattle species and temperament will determine the best voltage. I assured Bob that as long as his cattle were respecting the fence, he didn’t need to worry. I offered to dig further into amperage and voltage to give him a better answer.

Before we can determine if Bob has a good reading, we need to identify the differences between amps, voltage, ohms, watts, and all the other electrical lingo. Continue reading »
