College Football Hall of Fame Coach

RC Slocum, Named Spokesperson for The 50-Year Fence

SAN ANTONIO–San Antonio Steel Company (SASCO) recently announced 2012 College Football Hall of Fame Coach, RC Slocum, as the spokesperson for their premiere high-tensile, fixed knot product, The 50-Year Fence by StaTite50.

“We are delighted to have RC Slocum as a part of The 50-Year Fence family,” said L.C. “Chaz” Neely, Jr., CEO of San Antonio Steel Company. “As a ranch owner, RC understands the importance high-quality fence products have on the land and its animals.”

The 50-Year Fence is the only wire of its kind on the market today. With its advanced zinc-aluminum coating technology, The 50-Year Fence has been scientifically proven to last twice as long as Class 3 wire, and five times as long as Class 1.

This premier product suits a variety of applications in lieu of traditional barbed wire and field fencing. Its primary purposes are agricultural fencing, specifically sheep, cattle, goats and hogs, wildlife management, predator control, property division and commercial use at airports. The 50-Year Fence is manufactured in the United States and is exclusively distributed by San Antonio Steel Company.

The print and radio ad campaign, featuring the winningest football coach in Texas A&M University history, highlights characteristics important to both fencing and football including strength, confidence and trust.

Slocum will make his debut appearance with The 50-Year Fence at the 58th Annual Texas A&M Beef Cattle Short Course, August 6-8, 2012, in College Station.
