Pig QuikFence® 6/30/12 Starter Kit
Complete fence system contains all the essentials to fence in “free-range” pastured pigs. Portable electric netting eliminates the need for heavy wire panels and is simple to install and remove. Selectively till gardens, pastures, woodlots or just about anywhere else on the farmstead. 30" tall.
Starter kit includes:
- As a perimeter or subdivision fence for pastured pigs.
- Allows pigs to forage gardens, orchards and fields after harvest.
- Replacement for pens made of heavy wire panels.
Pig QuikFence® is intended for domestic pigs. To create a barrier for feral hogs, consider HogNet® instead.
Starter kit includes:
- 100 ft roll of 30" Pig QuikFence® single spike electric netting creates a 25' x 25' enclosure.
- 4 30" FiberTuff™ support posts
- Solar IntelliShock® 60 fence energizer with U-Spike ground stake (combination ground rod and support stand) and wiring harness.
- 5-Light Wireless Fence Tester
Pig QuikFence® 6/30/12 is a 30" electrifiable prefabricated fence. It arrives at your door as a complete roll with the single spike posts already built into the mesh/fence. Features 6 electrified horizontals strands with vertical struts placed every 12". Add 3 more rolls (Item #208062) to create a 100' x 100' enclosure.
FiberTuff™ Posts provide additional support around curves, corners and other major directional changes. Use at end posts to help maintain tension on the fence.
The Solar IntelliShock® 60 fence energizer will electrify 3-5 rolls of electric netting depending on soil conditions and vegetation.
Use the 5-Light Wireless Fence Tester to determine if your fence system is working properly. At the end of the net, the approximate voltage should measure at least 3,000V.
To train, set up Pig QuikFence® fence alongside (1 to 2 ft away) a secure permanent fence that the pigs can’t get through. Make sure the netting is electrified—at least 3000V at the end of the fence. Introduce the pigs to the fence and monitor for a few hours.
Electric fence is a pain barrier, not a physical barrier. A common mistake is not electrifying it. Animals may escape or become entangled (and may die). On a % basis, entanglement is very rare, but it can and does occur. If animals are scared or starved it will not keep them in. 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 post spikes to bend or break if inserted with force. Pilot holes may be needed. We recommend using drivable or single spike posts in hard soils. Double spike posts provide more stability when the ground is soft.
2-year warranty for energizers and solar panels cover lightning damage and defective parts or workmanship. Should an energizer fail, we will replace the unit, bill you for the cost to do so, then reimburse you for warranted expenses after we have examined the failed unit. Misuse and flood damage are not covered.
30-day warranty for all batteries.

Works great. I miss the bottom unelectrified tensioning line on the bottom that is present on the sheep/goat fence. That line makes it easier to make a tight, straight fence. Also need to figure out how to rotate most efficiently with two sections. I’ve heard that pigs will not cross where an electric fence has been. When I first set the fence up, I was able to leave a gap (which I filled with a pallet) at the front corner towards the next paddock. Now there is no gap in the direction I am moving so it will be an interesting challenge getting them to go eastward across where an electric barrier has been. I had the same challenge with goats but I’ve been able to race ahead of them and get them contained before they jailbreak. Really nervous about it with the pigs. Hopefully food will provide an adequate distraction. Anyone ever figure out an effective “leapfrogging” configuration solution? This would be the advantage of semi-permanent two-strand with gates and lanes a la Salatin.

So far so good. We had to train on this and even that went okay. I should have used a different area to train that wasn't wide open but it did end up working. We have two moms together with 6 little ones and everything is going good. We are moving them to their new work areas to plow and clean with little trouble.

Easy to set up both the fence and the charger. Both are working as they should to keep my pigs in their pasture paddock.

I ordered a pig fence kit that arrived in the time that I expected. However, The on/off button did not work. A call to customer service ended up with us fixing the problem which was to take the Intellishock apart and reposition the switch. I would say this is a design flaw that I hope they will fix.

The product was simple and quick to install.
I purchased it for two pigs; one pig was two months old and one pig was 6 months old. The little pig quickly exited under the fence and the bigger pig went through it short order. Tried training them with no success.
Love the fence just bought the wrong one for my small pigs I suppose. Costly mistake!
