In 1867, the American Joseph G. Gordon was patented for the invention of barbed wire. Speaking, this invention is once
The result of "lazy" relates to Joseph's experience as a shepherd boy in a ranch in California. At that time, Joseph often read books while shepherding sheep. While he was studying hard, animals frequently knocked down grazing fences made of piles of wood and wires and swarmed into nearby fields to steal crops. The rancher was so angry at the matter that he threatened to quit him.
Joseph observed after observation that the sheep sparsely covered spire rose walls. Thus, a lazy thought springs to mind: why not use a thin wire to make a barbed wire? He cut the fine wire into a 5-centimeter-long piece, then wrapped it on a wire fence and cut the end of the thin wire into a sharp spike. The sheep who wanted to steal the crops had to "sneer at Wang Wang," and Joseph no longer had to worry about being dismissed by the rancher. Because his invention was quickly spotted by commercially minded ranchers and opened a factory to produce this new grazing fence to meet
Other needs of pasture; After the product is on the market, orders are pouring in and the business is booming.
A famous economist believes that barbed wire is "one of seven patents that change the face of the world." It played a clear property right role in the pioneering process of the western frontier in the United States. It was with this barbed wire that ranchers were able to distinguish themselves from pastures of others. Because barbed wire is easy to produce, simple to install and inexpensive, it can effectively isolate livestock and reduce the probability of theft of personal property. Today, on Australian grasslands, one can still see a square of wire mesh left by settlers a century ago when they pioneered the area.
