Multi-Strand Fences with Reels
SupaReels have a built-in friction brake that enables multiple reels to be unrolled all at once by walking away from the end post assembly while pulling on all strands at the same time. EzeReels, by contrast, don’t have a brake—they must be unwound by carrying the reel.
For end and corner posts, most use steel T posts or small wood posts.
- Subdividing or strip grazing.
- Short-term boundary fences on rented land for pretrained sheep or goats.
- Containing feeder lambs on alfalfa and rye grass fields.
- Fencing dry does/ewes outside of breeding or weaning seasons.
Points To ConsiderBecause the wires on reel systems rarely exceed 4 wires, animals (insulated by their hair or wool) can push their heads between the wires if they feel the risk is worth it. They are less likely to do this if:
- They're pretrained to the "wires."
- They're not starved.
- The energizer and conductor combine to produce a very powerful shock.
Cost: as low as 20¢ per ft
Cost varies because the same reel assembly and energizer is needed whether the fence is short (400 ft) or long (1200 ft).
Tools: Maul or sledge to drive in the reel post support stake. Fence tester.
Time: About the time it takes to walk any distance (e.g. 1000 ft) twice.
Skill: Minimal. See additional installation instructions under Diagram & Accessories above.
