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.

The product seems great but it’s all way to expensive by the time it got to me. Shipping, duty, and just the price in Ferber all is way way too expensive! I hope one day you figure out a Canadian distributor because I will probably never buy this product again due to the extremely high cost.

Was quick and easy to set up, and good quality.

Great product. First time buyer. Bought based on reviews of previous customers. I wasn't disappointed. Quick service and turn around time. Easy set up as well. Pigs were curious and got shocked no more trouble. Now I'm able to move them around with ease and without worry of escape.

This fencing is perfect for my potbelled pigs. They tested it only once, got the idea and have not gone near it since. I also love how easy it is to take down when I mow and easy to go right back up. The solar energizer is ideal as it is just far enough from the barn not to worry about power cords. This fencing truly makes my life on the farm a bit easier.

Love! This fencing was recommended by a friend and after several weeks of using it we’re impressed! It is easy to install, I’m able to do it solo. The animals respect the fencing and appreciate the ease of moving pastures; most of my chickens stay inside of it which is nice because I worry less about predictors when they’re free ranging. It’s a great way to rotate fields without having to build permenant fencing. I highly recommend!
