HogNet® 10/24/12 (also known as) HogBloc 10/24/12
Specifically designed (if properly energized) to keep feral hogs out of fields, gardens, lawns and yards. The large amount of strands in a 24" fence increases visibility in brushy locations. Good for areas with high hog pressure. Can also contain domestic pigs.
Net sets up as Pos/Neg for dry, rocky, sandy or winter soil conditions. This aids in overcoming poor soil conductivity.
Pos/Neg Fences are for dry, sandy or rocky conditions. Ideal for situations when there is too little moisture in the soil to properly ground the fence.
- 10 horizontal white and black strands (9 electrified).
- Horizontal spacings from bottom to top are: 4" 2", 2", 2", 2", 2", 2", 4", 4".
- Verticals are white plastic struts spaced 12" apart.
- Posts are 1/2" diameter PVC with a bottom metal spike that goes into the ground.
- Spikes are 6" long and 1/4" in diameter.
- Posts are spaced every 12 ft.
- Installed net is 24" tall.
- Net is supplied in 100' or 50' lengths.
- 38 Ohms of resistance per 1000'
Every net is supplied with 1 warning sign and 1 repair kit.
Each fence can be wired as a Pos/Neg fence (for dry soils) or Pos/Pos (soils damp enough to keep grass green).
#208065 - $1.38 per ft (50' roll with single spike posts).
For dry areas install as a Pos/Neg fence. Connect the energizer fence lead to the positive "+" net clip and energizer ground lead to the ground rod. Then connect a PowerLink from the negative "-" net clip to the ground rod.
For moist conditions connect both net clips together and attach energizer fence lead to net clips then attach energizer ground lead to ground rod.
Remember...netting must always be properly electrified!
Note: This is a pain barrier, not a physical barrier. If animals are scared or starved it is less likely to keep them out.
Use only with a low or wide impedance intermittent pulse energizer. Warning! Do NOT use continuous output energizers with electric netting due to risk of fire. (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.
Dry or frozen ground many cause the NetPost spikes to bend or break if inserted with force. Pilot holes may be needed.

Premier1 says they want feedback on this product, but I don't see a link to provide that, so hopefully someone from Premier1 is reading this - and - hopefully this will be helpful to others.
First off - the product works - probably as well as any electric fence will do - actually better. I've been containing our domestic (Heritage - Large Black Hogs) with "HogNet" for a couple of years now. It's my fence of choice for containing sows that are about to farrow as it has a fine enough mesh to keep the piglets where they belong. I generally use this fence to contain pigs until they are big enough to contain with fewer wires strung at higher levels with fewer posts. I nspite of any negatives (below) I use and like this fence, will likely buy more of it, and DO reccomend it to others raising hogs.
Pros: Light, inexpensive, tight mesh, easy to set up, and not too high. You can step over it and since pigs live their whole lives at low levels, 42 or 48" fence is a waste of money. The fine mesh keeps in the little guys. I haven't used it in the hot/ground/hot configuration, just as an "all hot" conventional setup.
Cons: Domestic pigs WILL bury the lowest wires causing problems - especially when it rains. This is probably unvoidable as those wires need to be low to keep small piglets in.
Sag: though it is a problem with ALL "temporary" wlectric fences, because this fence is short to start out, sagging can make for a very low fence. PERHAPS if a fence is laid out with VERY straight lines, FEW corners, and lots of extra "guy wires" to hold tension, sagging can be avoided, but that's not practical in wooded areas or over irregular ground. I'D like to see the vertical spacers made of a material less likely to bend as when these verticals bend and take a "set" - they're even harder to keep upright. PERHAPS having posts with spikes at closer intervals might also help the problem.
Single Spikes: Easy to put up, but don't hold very well in loose or sandy soils. This, combined with hogs' natural behaviour of rooting mean that your fence can come down easily. I'D like to see either longer spikes or dual spikes as the other Premier1 fences use. Single spikes with little holding power make it tough to give the fence enough "tension" to keep it from sagging.
All in all, a very good product that works as advertised and may be improved by mitigating a few of the problems common to many electrified-net styles of fence.

Seems to sag between the stakes. Vertical stakes are too light. I had to purchase a number of additional stakes. So far is working to keep feral hogs. Time will tell.
Jonathan S from Tennessee
Generally works well, however it does not energize if there has been a frost or ice. Has meant pigs repeatedly getting out :(

It is great to have the length-100 feet is really helpful. These stakes seem to be lighter than the last length we purchased. It is easy to handle, we will see about sagging as it ages. Thanks!
