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

Ordered two of these for my Pygmy goats. The first roll took a very little learning to do for set up. By the second roll of fencing I was pro. The set up is very easy. You unroll it, put the rods in the ground, and hook up to an electric fencer. Only needed two fence posts per side to pull it a little tighter. Took maybe a little over an hour to set up. The goats tested it a couple times. One goat even got his horns and leg stuck but got back out of the fence fine. I was worried the fence broke but it held up! The goats don’t even go near it anymore.

If your goats are not mischievous and are easy to keep in, then this fence is for you. If your goats like to test fences, you may want to buy the more durable netting. Easy install.

Fence works great. Easy to set up. The poles are a little flimsy when trying to push into some harder ground. I would definitely buy the double spike if I had it to do over, but I am very happy overall.

Works flawlessly! This is now our 2nd fence for our growing farm. We will definitely continue to use these as we add more flocks and herds.

I'm very happy with the shipping. The cost is reasonable. This fence works good. I even got a repair kit. The only negative comment I have is not enough poles to hold it up right. It sags when I move 1 to tighten then it pulls the another section causing it to sag. The poles are a little light weight but really just more poles. But over all it's worth the money you just need to buy more poles.
