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.

- #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

This is an awesome fence for goats. I have dwarfs and large goats and it’s perfect for either of them! Will be buying more soon!

This fence is not good for goats that have horns. Goats are stubborn and test the fence, one of my goats got his horns caught in the net and couldn’t get out and panicked. He wiggled around and got the netting wrapped around his throat and strangled himself to death.
To train, set up a temporary fence alongside (1 to 2 ft away) a secure permanent fence that the animals can’t get through. Make sure the temporary fence is electrified—at least 3000V at the end of fence. Introduce the animals to the fence and monitor for a few hours. That way if one were to get into the fence and get caught, you can turn the power off and get them loose.

This fencing has been a life saver. We could not keep our feisty buck in any pen. he would break out, or through, anything we set up. Finally we broke down and got this fencing and he got shocked three times and has not gone near it scene. He is doing great in it and it has not fallen or uprooted at all. We are right in the middle of high wind season and it stays put.

This fence isn’t safe for any animals! As it was very HOT and we lost our prize buck, a pregnant nanny and a 2 month old baby. Poor design. I’ll never use any of the fences ever! We watch tons of farm shows on u tube and they always talk about it. Not very good at all! Premiere 1 wouldn’t do anything about this as well as pay for shipping back to them as we only used one of the two fences we bought from them. Poor service and products.

Easy to install. You will definitely need some back up poles, I already had a bundle of fiberglass poles on hand from past electric fencing projects. Or you could use T-posts with the clip-on style insulators for a couple of the hot lines in this net. I think it’s definitely worth the time savings for fencing. You need to introduce your goats to it in a slow way or they will just run through it with no recognition of it. They have to learn to respect it. Dogs are the same. Use a good charger recognizing you have to electrify 600 feet of wire for each 100 foot long segment. Good product, you just have to recognize limitations.
