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.

(from bottom to top)
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.
- #208442 - $1.12 per ft (82' roll with single spike posts)
- #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

I was a little clumsy working with this at first but now...its AWESOME! I do have some area's that were old gravel roads overgrown so I do carry with me a 2 ft rebar post and hammer to do pilot holes if needed. This has kept my goats and LGD puppies where they are suppose to be! I wish I could afford more rolls now!
