Goat & Sheep Net 10/42/7
A prefabricated fence that has 10 horizontal twines (9 conductive); is 42" tall installed, and has a plastic string vertical every 7".
White PVC posts are built into the mesh every 13.6 ft. The result, when energized properly, is a nearly impenetrable mesh to goats, sheep, coyotes and dogs.
How does it compare to ElectroStop®?
- Is less expensive.
- Weaker posts (smaller in diameter). Posts spaced apart 13.6'.
- 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.
- Electrical resistance (380 ohms/1000 ft) is 10 times higher. Not advised for fences longer than 2 to 3 rolls of netting or for fences exposed to heavy weed load.
- Yellow color is not as visible against all backgrounds as white/black.
New for 2022! Now 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.

Each roll comes with 1 Warning Sign and 1 Repair Kit.
* Pos/Neg (PN) fences are recommended where the soil is very dry and/or the animals do not ground well. Two clips are used at each end. One is hooked to the energizer, the second should be connected to a ground rod.

- #208443 - $0.83 per ft (164' roll with single spike posts)
- #208446 - $1.45 per ft (100' Pos/Neg roll with single spike posts)
Tip: When using Pos/Neg fencing, a PowerLink is recommended to attach the negative lead to the ground rod.
It is best to have animals trained to electric fencing before you turn them out in the net only. 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 posts to bend or break if inserted with force. Pilot holes may be needed.
Start by measuring the voltage at the end of the fence line. If the voltage is below 3000V, follow these steps to determine if the problem is with the fence, or the energizer.
Test the energizer first!
- Turn off the energizer.
- Disconnect the wires going to the fence and ground stake/rod.
- Turn the energizer back on.
- Measure the voltage on the energizer between the two terminals (positive and negative) with a digital voltmeter or other high-voltage tester. Touch one end to “-“ (earth terminal) and the other end to “+” (fence terminal). The reading tells you how well the energizer is working without any other variables.
- If the tester reads below 5000V, then the energizer (or possibly the battery) is the problem. If the voltage is above 5000V, then the trouble lies with your fence.
If the fence is at fault:
- Conductors touching another wire, steel post or the soil
- Broken or damaged insulators

Premier is right, it is not the best electric fence out there. I was impatient and didn’t wait till the "pro" line was back in stock and now I regret it.
The fence is very flimsy and needs support posts every 2 feet. The posts that it comes with are also very soft and bend very easily. I have yet to test in the snow — for now, it keeps the goats in and the predators out. I do check it 3 times a day; if it is windy, it flops over, if it is too hot, it flops over… you get the picture. Take heed to the warning on the description — wait for the pro line to be back in stock.
Review on the 164" yellow single-spike. I give 5 stars for quick shipping across border and ease of ordering!

I have a few rolls of the 164' and 82' electric netting now and love it for quick fencing and use for alleyways to run goats in. We have sun hemp and iron clay peas planted outside of main pastures and use a few rolls of these to fence it off to bring does in to feed a few hours of the day. Our goats are Kikos so they are horned, but ours are trained to electric fencing and respect it so we have no problems with them getting stuck or jumping over.

I got 3 164' rolls with a solar fence charger. It work very well with our dry soils. The fence is easy to install with a rubber mallet. My escape artists are now contained!

My 3 month old sheep got tangled in this netting overnight. He was shocked repeatedly overnight until we found him the next morning. When we found him he was still being shocked until we turned off the solar powered charger. We had to take him to LSU animal hospital, and he was treated in the ICU for several days. He then began having seizures, and we had to euthanize him. We loved our sheep “Buddy” so much. My daughters are both traumatized from finding him that morning.
We do our best to inform customers on our website and catalogs that there is a risk of entanglement (and possibly death) with electric fence. On a % basis, entanglement is very rare. We recommend training animals new to electric fence and monitoring them for a few hours to help reduce this risk.

100% worth the investment! I’ve never messed with electrical netting before but Premier 1 is worth it!
I had originally looked on Amazon thinking it would be the cheaper route but it was definitely not!
I got it to separate my bucks from my does. At first I tried it in the main pasture tied to the electric fence. So if they escaped they would still be contained. The two bucklings tried it several times but they never pushed it. My other buck that is 2 years got zapped a few times but was somehow able to jump and clear the fence!!!
