ElectroNet® Plus 9/35/12 Electric Netting
New! ElectroNet Plus has posts every 6.8 ft (vs. 12.5 ft for standard ElectroNet). More posts means less sag and a more versatile fence.
A prefabricated fence that has 9 horizontal twines (8 conductive); is 35 in. tall installed, and has large white plastic vertical struts every 12 in.
White PVC posts are built into the mesh every 6.8 ft. The result, when energized properly, is a nearly impenetrable mesh to sheep, goats, coyotes and dogs.
The black and white colors provide 24/7 visibility to both humans and animals against light and dark backgrounds. It's low electrical resistance (only 38 Ω/1000 ft) is an important benefit for longer fences and/or fences with high weed contact.
Used to keep sheep, goats, guard dogs in while keeping out stray dogs and coyotes. Can be used for cattle and domestic hogs.
Note: Can also be used for beehive protection to keep out livestock and bears. Click our Garden/Wildlife tab above and then click on fencing (at left).
Pos/Neg fences are for dry, sandy or rocky conditions. Ideal for situations when there is too little moisture in the soil to properly ground the fence.
Very easy to move. Secure for adults, lambs and kids. Visible for animals against all back grounds. End posts act as built in gates.
#201500 - $1.30 per ft (100' roll with double spike posts).
See PDF above for installation instructions.
This is a pain barrier, not a physical barrier. If animals are scared or starved it will not keep them in.
It is best to have animals trained to electric fencing before you turn them out in the net only. The first time you put the animals in the net, you should be available to watch them for a while. That way if one were to get into the fence and get caught, you can turn the power off and get them loose.
Dry conditions and wintertime usages—may reduce the effectiveness of electric fencing.
Dry or frozen ground many cause the NetPost spikes to bend or break if inserted with force. Pilot holes may be needed.
If the voltage drops below 3000v on the net, you need to turn off the energizer and unhook the net from the energizer. Test just the energizer by itself. If the voltage is 5000v or higher on the energizer the problem is in the net. The most common problem is that the lowest 'hot' strand has been caught around one of the metal spikes on the posts and is shorting it out. The net must be at least 2" away from anything metal (metal posts, existing fences, spikes on support posts).
With proper care, netting should last 5-7 years. Replacements will be prorated.

Electrified netting has been an essential tool on our farms since 1978. It is difficult to imagine life without it. That others share this view is proven by the demand for it from sheep and goat owners across North America. (We were the first to introduce it to the US and now supply 80% of all that's in use.)
