Goat & Sheep Net 9/42/6
How does Goat Net compare to ElectroStop and ElectroStop Plus?
- Weaker posts (smaller in diameter).
- 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 6" instead of 12".
- One less energized strand (9 vs 10).
- 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.
- Strip-graze pastures and short-term crops such as turnips and rape.
- As an interim permanent fence until a proper fence can be built.
- Enclose rams and buck/billy goats.
- Keep coyotes, dogs and bears out.
- Keep domestic dogs in.
- Graze orchards and vineyards.
- Make temporary lanes for moving animals from place to place.
- Make replaceable water gaps.
- Protect outdoor hay supplies.
- Graze stockpiled forage on hay fields in late fall and early winter.
Because it’s so easy to install and remove, many folks move Premier’s netting weekly—fencing the flock or herd instead of the field.
We’re aware that the lower price of Electric Goat Net will encourage folk to choose this version. Think carefully before you do so. Customers who are unhappy with netting are often those who’ve chosen its farmstore/catalog equivalents. So why do we offer it? Because it is similar to nets from other sources—and comparisons make decisions easier.

The basic “unroll and then unfold” process is the same for all electrified nets. Installing netting requires minimal strength and skill and no tools. No extra line posts are necessary with nets unless the soil is soft or the fence will stay in place over 6 weeks. However, extra support posts (either step-in posts or FiberRods) are often needed at corners, curves and ends.
To purchase Electric Goat Net
- 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.
Keeps in: sheep, goats, cattle and pigs. Protects: Bees.
Keeps out: bears, coyotes and dogs.
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.
