Safe, easy to install, made to last and economical compared to non-electric fences, Gallagher’s electric fence systems offer a wide range of fencing options for all animal types and for all farming practices  from large corporate farms to hobby or lifestyle. Select from the range of permanent, portable and offset retrofit fencing systems.

  • Retrofit Fencing

  • Smart Fencing

Permanent Fencing

Permanent high tensile wire systems create long life, permanent electric fences. They are 
easy to install and operate and provide highly effective animal control that lasts a lifetime.


Permanent fences use highly conductive, corrosion-resistant fence wire together with wood, steel, fibre glass or Gallagher Insulated Line PostsUse Gallagher components to keep fences looking good and working effectively for a lifetime.

Constructing permanent electric fences involves several steps:


  1. Installing end & corner posts
  2. Attaching strain insulators to end posts
  3. Installing guide wires and line posts
  4. Tensioning the wires
  5. Completing the electrical connections
  6. Installing gates and gateways


Gallagher also recommends using fence management tools to make fault finding and repair quick and easy. This Electric Fencing Manual guides you through the right fencing setups and range of products required to fence your cattle, sheep, pigs, goats and horses. If you are new to electric fencing, our tips will help you get off to a great start.

Portable Fencing


Portable fencing is so easy to move and set up, it’s a versatile solution for fencing any type of animal, even on the most remote area of your property.


A temporary/portable electric fence can be powered by any Gallagher Multi-powered, Solar or Battery Energizer or can be simply connected to a permanent electric fence supplied by a Mains powered Energizer.

A Portable Fencing Posts
Ring Top or Pigtail posts are a popular option for dairy and cattle portable fencing. Multiwire treadins come with the option to secure wire at different heights so they can be used for all other animals.

B Reels
Reels hold the tape, braid or wire for the portable fence. You can use just one reel for single line fences or up to four reels, attached to a reel stand, for multiwire fences.

C Tapes, Wires and Braids
Tapes, wires or braid are used on portable fences rather than the galvanised wire used on permanent fences. Gallagher conductors are ideal for portable electric fences as they are light, visible and easy to wind.

D Lead Connector (G63400)
Power Connectors are leads that connect a portable fence to an existing permanent electric fence.

Retrofit Fencing


Retrofit electric fencing is an economical and easy to install option if you have an existing or new non-electric fence that you want to protect.


Offset brackets are fitted to a conventional fence to suspend an electrified wire (or wires) on one or both sides of the fence. The wire discourages animals from rubbing or pushing against the fence, thereby extending its life.


A variety of offset brackets are available to attach to wood post or steel fences, or to mount directly onto the wires of an existing non-electric fence (barbed wire, chain link, etc.).


A Joint Clamps
Securely connects the high tensile wire in a secure electrical connection.

B Insulated Wire Strainer 

The Insulated Wire Strainer combines an end strain insulator and strainer. Simply tie onto the end post and wind the fence wire onto the spool.

C End Strain Insulator
Connects to the other end of the fence to provide long term end strain insulation.

D Offsets
Offsets protect existing fences and reduce fence damage – the type of offset selected will depend on what the fence posts are made of i.e. wood, steel, concrete. There is also an option to attach an offset directly to a wire fence.

E Multi Strand Electric Tape Gate
A low cost all-in-one permanent electrified gate option for practically any width gateway, that’s easy to use and quick to assemble.

F High Conductive Cable
This highly conductive cable carries the power from the energizer to the middle of the fence system.
