Electric Fences for Sheep, Goats and Cattle
Grazing with Multi-strand Fences
Low-cost to purchase, easy to maintain…
Without question, multi-strand fences (for which you install the end, corner, curve and line posts and then add a conductor) are the least expensive fence designs per foot.
The trade-off compared to electric netting? A strand fence can be more complicated to install and remove. And they are less effective than netting at stopping many species of livestock and wildlife.
But, for lengthy livestock fences with plenty of grazing and low predator pressure, they are excellent!
Multi-strand fence with pigtail post for rotational grazing
Common Uses:
  • Subdividing large pastures to rotate grazing and reduce trampling
  • Strip-grazing rape, turnips and corn stubble
  • Containing dry does and ewes when food, libido and newly weaned offspring are not an issue
  • Reducing access to streams and ponds
  • Guiding livestock into temporary corrals

Two Design Options:
  1. Reeled fences (see large photo above) allow for the quick installation and removal of conductors from the posts. Very useful in fast, rotational grazing systems.
  2. Non-reeled fences are best used for set stocking, where the speed of reel systems is unnecessary.
To help you get started, we’ve compiled answers to a few common fencing questions.

Pigtail Fence Posts
Versatile fence solution for any grazing system
Grass farmers around the world rely on pigtail fencing posts for rotational and strip grazing. Posts from Strainrite® Fencing Systems provide the best combination of durability and value on our own farms. Premier is pleased to offer them in the USA.

Strainrite® electric fence posts are made in New Zealand, an island known for its high UV exposure and coastal sea spray. (Salty air acts as a corrosion agent.) Manufactured using top-grade galvanized steel and UV-treated plastics, these posts are built to withstand tough conditions.

The utility of galvanized springsteel is important for many livestock operations. Strainrite’s pigtail posts stand up the harshest elements and are built to last.
Why Springsteel?
Common steel posts, when inserted into hard soils, are prone to bending along the shaft. By contrast, springsteel posts are more resilient. Stressed posts will flex and then “spring” back into their original shape.

It’s more than a benefit during installation; wayward round bales, ATVs, and other objects are less likely to permanently damage them.

Pigtail posts are also available with “live-shafts” and tangle-free heads. Choosing the correct post for your situation is essential to building and maintaining an electric fence.
