Pig QuikFence® 6/30/12
A portable electric fence designed to keep “free range” pastured pigs in. The bottom strand is suspended 6" above the ground to prevent pigs from rooting soil onto the fence.
Put your pigs to work by using their rooting and foraging instincts to your benefit. Selectively till gardens, pastures, woodlots or just about anywhere else on the farmstead. Once a section is tilled, it’s easy to take down the fence and move the pigs to their next job site.
New to electric fence? Premier’s Starter Kits may be a good choice. They include netting, extra support posts, a solar fence energizer, ground stake and a digital tester.
Which Pig QuikFence® is right for you?We offer many fences to fit your situation, including multiple lengths with different post spacings, drivable line posts and positive/negative options for dry soils. Visit this link to compare all Pig QuikFence options.
- As a perimeter or subdivision fence for pastured pigs.
- Allows pigs to forage gardens, orchards and fields after harvest.

Pig QuikFence® is intended for domestic pigs. To create a barrier for feral hogs, consider HogNet® instead.

To train, set up Pig QuikFence® fence alongside (1 to 2 ft away) a secure permanent fence that the pigs can’t get through. Make sure the netting is electrified—at least 3000V at the end of the fence. Introduce the pigs to the fence and monitor for a few hours.
Electric fence is a pain barrier, not a physical barrier. A common mistake is not electrifying it. Animals may escape or become entangled (and may die). On a % basis, entanglement is very rare, but it can and does occur. If animals are scared or starved it will not keep them in. 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.
Warning! Due to risk of fire, do NOT use continuous output energizers with electric netting or electro-plastic conductors such as rope, twine or tape. Use only with a low or wide impedance intermittent pulse energizer. (Fi-Shock™ brand energizers which are sold as low impedance, continuous current output should NOT be used with electric netting.) All energizers sold on Premier’s website use an intermittent pulse and are suitable for use with electric netting.
Dry conditions and wintertime usage may reduce the effectiveness of electric fencing. Ice and heavy snow can flatten netting and thereby damage it.
Dry or frozen ground may cause post spikes to bend or break if inserted with force. Pilot holes may be needed. We recommend using drivable or single spike posts in hard soils. Double spike posts provide more stability when the ground is soft.
Listed below are recommended optional components. Your particular situation may require alternative recommendations. Please call and talk to our fence consultants if there are any questions at 800-282-6631.

Love this for my goats on very uneven ground! Bottom wire is electrified AND ADJUSTABLE height so they go under at dips in the ground much less. I don’t see it saying about the adjustment in the description but its one of the best features! I have only one goat that jumped it and I make sure never to put her in it again to teach the others.

I was very skeptical at first about this pig fencing. We have used a solid steel wire for years and it worked just fine. I wanted to start branching out and pasturing my pigs in some of the woods to clear underbrush and debris. With a new litter of piglets I needed a way to keep them contained so I got this pig fencing as a 2-for-1 purchase. I figured if it didn't work for the piglets it would do fine for the woods. Boy have I been amazed! It works fantastic.
It's super easy to put up and super easy to adjust / move. No need for thousands of dollars of woven wire fence just put this up and you are good to go and free to change your mind and move it into another configuration.
One tip I can say is you gotta have a good fence charger and a good ground. I use mine with a 25 year old Parmak charger and I always use a 6' copper ground rod. This keeps my fence voltage around 12K. That zap gets those pigs to remember and they do not test it but once. Fantastic product and I will be buying more!

Loving this fence! I was able to put it up by myself, super simple. My pigs are loving their new area I put them in, they are now pasture pigs!

Love this fencing. We have use these to move our pigs to a new spot every few days, or put a couple together to make double runs if we are going out of town. We had issues with pigs escaping when we used a weak (cheap) energizer. Once we bought a better energizer we had no issues.

Not a practical product. If you are feeding pigs on pasture they will short the fence on it when rooting or if grass is any taller than a few inches it will constantly be arcing. When you turn the fence off to feed or work with pigs they might run through the fence in excitement (they are fence trained pigs but as you know they seem to need to test the fence daily). At that point the fence is a one and done, totally trashed. You are better off running a few strands on poly wire. Easier to step over and if the pigs go through it (they will) they won’t trash your fence.
Multi-strand polywire fences also work well for pastured pigs, though many find netting easier to set up and move.
