Goat & Sheep Net 10/42/7
A prefabricated fence that has 10 horizontal twines (9 conductive); is 42" tall installed, and has a plastic string vertical every 7".
White PVC posts are built into the mesh every 13.6 ft The result, when energized properly, is a nearly impenetrable mesh to sheep, goats, coyotes and dogs.
How does Goat Net compare to ElectroStop and ElectroStop Plus?
- Weaker posts (smaller in diameter). Posts spaced apart 13.6'.
- Has string verticals instead of plastic struts. So it is more prone to sagging and more likely to tangle and bunch when installing and removing.
- Verticals occur every 7" instead of 12".
- Electrical resistance (380 ohms/1000 ft) is 10 times higher. Not advised for fences longer than 2 to 3 rolls of netting or fences exposed to heavy weed load.
- Is less expensive.
- Yellow/white instead of white/black.
Note: We’re aware that the lower price of this net will encourage folks to choose this version. Think carefully before you do so. Customers who are unhappy with netting are often those who’ve chosen its farmstore equivalents.
So why do we offer it? Because it is similar to nets from other sources—and comparisons make decisions easier.

You will need a fence energizer to electrify the net.
See PDFs and videos above for additional installation instructions.
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.
Use only with a low or wide impedance intermittent pulse energizer.
Warning! Do NOT use continuous output energizers with electric netting due to risk of fire. (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.
Dry or frozen ground many cause the NetPost spikes to bend or break if inserted with force. Pilot holes may be needed.

This fence came with posts that are not strong enough to hold the fence right. I had to add electric fence posts to it, and only then was it standing up properly.
My goats didn’t do well with it. One got zapped and tangled up in it badly (we had to rush out and disconnect the power, so he would stop being zapped). The other one got zapped and jumped over it immediately. Returned it, as it was not what we were hoping for.

The posts were flimsy and the netting seemed like the wire only got hot in certain spots. Lost 4 goats.

3rd time I have ordered from Premier 1. Always happy with the product and service!

I have only used this fencing for about 5 days but so far it has kept my 2 goats in. I would recommend purchasing the gate when it becomes available. Not having the electric gate to use with it has made it challenging. I’m not sure how well it would work in keeping coyotes out since they are able to jump quite high and could easily make it over 42".

Very easy to use. Poles need support at the turns but you can get those. Otherwise great.
