What sort of teeth are on that auger fence? Is there much down pressure on it?

It's a beltec spiral cut auger. Carbide bullet teeth. The down pressure is enough to easily lift the back tires of our 50 horse tractor off the ground. And sometimes it'll pick up the 85 if it's sitting just right. When needed you use the fel to shift more weight to the back.

Braces built out of what appears to be old car frames. Fence was built approx 1954

Any idea on how best to proceed with an old fence like this? It's about 300 yards between my neighbor and my property. The fence wire is OK on some spots and toasted in others. I'd like to prop it up for the sake of expediency.

start planting T posts and hanging wire, splice in new where you need it. it seems to be mostly standing, better than some I need to work on. LOL

Thank you @Hippie Rancher. You mean T posts in between the existing ones?

wherever you need them to prop it up. every so far you might need to tighten some wires, choose a bad spot to cut out and splice the ends together. we do this on our 100 year old fences all the time. replace heavy rotten wood posts with steel, leave lighter ones as stays. splice in new wire or even run a whole roll if the old wire is totally trashed. new wood stays if the old wire is real rusty, otherwise twisted wire stays. function over looks can save some money if you have the time.

Best fence building come along made. 1ton 12' single 3/16 cable. Buy you a couple and thank me later.

I don't hardly do anything less than 6 and alot of 7 and 8. It doesn't take that much more than 5.
Leave around 8 - 12 inches of the ground and about a 61/2 inch spacing. Will hold cattle as good as any netwire and doesn't interfere with wildlife like netwire.

Stretch you five new wires right over it. It'll be easier than patching.
