Electric Fence Systems

If you are fencing more than one type of animal, it is best to choose the fence set up recommended for the smallest animal, to ensure they can't get under the bottom wire.


An electric fence is a psychological barrier that keeps livestock in and pr​e​dators out - even over long distances. A pulse of electric current is sent along the fence wire, about one pulse per second, from an energizer (a.k.a. fence charger or fencer) which is grounded. When an animal touches the fence, it completes the circuit between the fence and the ground receiving a short, sharp but safe shock. ​​​The shock is sufficient​ to keep the animal away from the fence.

Because the fence is a ​psychological barrier, it does not require great physical strength. However, it must be well designed and constructed to absorb some pressure from animals, snow and wind. The energizer must have enough power for the length of the fence and for the animals being controlled.
