Electric Fence Sheep & Goat Equipment Poultry Supplies
Portable electric fences

It’s almost a mistake to call electric netting a fence. Why? Because the word “fence” suggests a barrier that’s costly, time-consuming and complicated to install and won’t be removed for decades. But netting is the exact opposite: It doesn’t require a contractor or any special tools to install. It’s so easy to move that it’s often moved several times a season.

Goodbye Winter. Hello Spring!
Maintain fences now for the grazing season ahead
After a long winter in southeast Iowa, we’re ready to move our flocks to pasture and begin grazing fresh, green forage. Before we do, we need to make sure that our fences are ready, which means maintenance. Maintenance now means less downtime and hassles later.

Electric netting maintenance checklist:
  1. Repair broken conductors using Litz-Clips® or brass ferrules. A netting repair kit includes all of the essentials for patching tears and holes made by animals, weed-eaters, lawnmowers and whatever else may have damaged the fence.
  2. Recharge and check energizer batteries. Place solar units in the sun for a day or two to recharge their batteries. Use a trickle charger on spare DC batteries. Test with a Digital Battery Meter. 12.6V and up is fully charged. Replace batteries that hold a 12.2V charge (40% charge) or less.
  3. Replace broken support and line posts and gates.
How To Install Electric Netting
Even for new users, it takes less than 10 minutes to go from out-of-the-box netting to installed fence. See for yourself! Watch our installation video or read our step-by-step guide.
New to electric net fences?

Premier’s electric netting is well-suited for rotational grazing—it’s quick to install, durable and adaptable to dips and curves in difficult terrain. It is an electrifiable, prefabricated, portable fence that arrives at your door as a complete roll with the line posts already built into the fence’s mesh. A standard roll (164 ft) including posts weighs only 23 lbs. You will need a fence energizer to electrify the net.

Common uses…
  • Keeps in—poultry, goats, pigs, sheep, cattle, dogs and more.
  • Keeps out—deer, bears, coyotes, foxes, stray dogs, skunks, opossums, raccoons and other nuisances.
  • Easily rotate livestock to fresh grass.
  • Use as a wildlife boundary around gardens, beehives, orchards and vineyards.
With proper planning, installing your own fence doesn’t need to be intimidating. Learn how to effectively use electrified netting with these helpful articles:
