Sheep QuikFence® 6/35/24
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.
- Protects sheep, goats and cattle. Keep out coyotes, foxes and bears.
- To graze orchards and vineyards.
- To subdivide pastures for a whole season in lieu of moving netting.
- To protect outdoor hay supplies.
- To graze stockpiled forage on hayfields/pastures in late fall and early winter.
- As an interim permanent fence until a proper fence can be built.
How does it compare to PermaNet?
- Same strong .75" dia. posts.
- Same verticals.
- Same high conductivity.
- Lowest strand is energized and suspended 7" above the ground (instead of neutral and resting on the soil). This reduces the need to spray weeds—and weeds that do contact it are less able to drain away electricity (because it is further to the soil).
- Verticals occur every 24" instead of 6". Fewer verticals means it’s less affected by high winds.
- 6 horizontals instead of 10.
- 33% less expensive per linear ft.
To InstallThe same “unroll and then unfold” process applies to all electrified nets. Minimal strength or skill needed (and no tools). Requires strong support support posts such as 11/16" FiberRods 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. (Its mortal enemy is errant lawn mowers!)
- If the fence is near trees, check fences after high winds for fallen branches. (This should be done with all fences.)
- Monitor the voltage levels. It should be at least 3000 volts if the soil is moist and 3500 volts if the soil is dry.
- Check the posts from time to time. They may become loose in the soil (occurs in wet clay soils when wind blows the fence back and forth) or begin to lean. To correct this, just move the post over 1" and reset it.

How To Purchase
- Measure the fence line.
- Choose the length and the amount of netting needed. (Example: For a 170 ft fence line, order two 100 ft nets.) When setting up, fold back the remaining 30 ft of 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.
