ElectroNet® & ElectroNet® Plus 9/35/12 Electric Netting
Its very low electrical resistance (38 ohms per 1000') is important for fences that are either long or will experience high weed contact.
It's also available as a Pos/Neg fence for dry, sandy or rocky conditions. Ideal for situations when there is too little moisture in the soil to properly ground the fence.
Actual on-farm uses normally exceed the purposes for which it's purchased:
- Strip-graze pastures, turnips and rape.
- As interim permanent fence until a proper fence can be built.
- Enclose rams and buck goats.
- Make small pastures for animals that need attention (ewes/does/nannies with triplets; injured or stressed animals).
- Graze orchards and vineyards.
- Make lanes for moving animals.
- Replaceable water gaps that work.
- Protect outdoor hay supplies.
- Graze stockpiled forage on hayfields in late fall and early winter.
- ElectroNet® 9/35/12 is 35" tall and has 9 horizontal strands (8 conductive) with vertical struts every 12". Built-in line posts (0.51" dia.) are spaced every 12'5". Choose the Pos/Neg option when there is too little moisture in the soil to properly ground the fence.
- ElectroNet® 9/35/12 (with drivable posts) is best suited for dry, hard or rocky soil. The 0.75" dia. posts are much stronger and stiffer than standard line posts and can be pounded in with a dead-blow hammer or mallet. Brown drive-caps indicate these posts are drivable. Available Pos/Neg option for dry conditions.
- ElectroNet® Plus 9/35/12 is identical to standard ElectroNet, but to help with sagging, we’ve added more posts to shorten the distance between them (6'8" vs. 12'5"). Adapts easily to uneven terrain.

To InstallThe same “unroll and then unfold” process applies to all electrified nets. Minimal strength or skill needed (and no tools). Extra supports such as FiberTuff™ step-in posts are useful at corners, curves and ends. You will need a fence energizer to electrify the net.
Even for new users, it takes less than 10 minutes to go from out-of-the-box netting to installed fence. And it’s durable! Nets last over 10 seasons if used and stored properly.

How To Purchase
- Measure the fence line.
- Choose the length and the amount of netting needed. (Example: For a 250 ft fence line, order one 164 ft net and one 82 ft net. Or two 100 ft rolls and one 50 ft roll of Plus net.)
- Choose support posts for corners, curves and ends.
- Select an energizer, ground rod and a fence tester.
We offer many fences to fit your situation, including different heights and lengths, multiple colors, drivable posts and positive/negative options for dry soils. Questions? Call our fence consultants at
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.
