Electric FenceFast Netting is a practical, effective way to contain livestock and deter predators, garden intruders, and unwanted pests. It is easy to install, and can be used for rotational grazing or temporary enclosures. One person can erect the lightweight netting bundle with step-in posts built right into it in ten minutes or less! The netting is also designed to be easily moved and set up again.
The electric pulse that powers the netting is delivered by low-impedance battery or mains (110/120) powered energizers, and is ground via a rod that extends down into the soil. Keeping the ground rod clean and free of grass and other weeds is important to ensure that pulse strength and effectiveness remains high.
Safety in Every Strand: Exploring the Versatility and Benefits of Electric Fence Netting
Joe and Matt will discuss what to look for in an energizer, how to properly ground an electric fence, differences between permanent and temporary fencing, and the different netting options that are available from Premier 1. They will also go over the benefits of this style of fencing versus more traditional woven wire field fences.
The netting is made of a poly mesh grid with larger holes near the bottom, and smaller ones near the top. This design makes it very effective at discouraging foxes and other predators, but is still safe enough for chickens to safely interact with. It is very effective at stopping trespassers by creating a psychological barrier that animals will be reluctant to cross. Netting does require some monitoring, and there is a risk of animal entanglement and death.
