Pig QuikFence® 6/30/12
A portable electric fence designed to keep “free range” pastured pigs in. The bottom strand is suspended 6" above the ground to prevent pigs from rooting soil onto the fence.
Put your pigs to work by using their rooting and foraging instincts to your benefit. Selectively till gardens, pastures, woodlots or just about anywhere else on the farmstead. Once a section is tilled, it’s easy to take down the fence and move the pigs to their next job site.
New to electric fence? Premier’s Starter Kits may be a good choice. They include netting, extra support posts, a solar fence energizer, ground stake and a digital tester.
Which Pig QuikFence® is right for you?We offer many fences to fit your situation, including multiple lengths with different post spacings, drivable line posts and positive/negative options for dry soils. Visit this link to compare all Pig QuikFence options.
- 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.

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.
Listed below are recommended optional components. Your particular situation may require alternative recommendations. Please call and talk to our fence consultants if there are any questions at 800-282-6631.

This is a fantastic product. I have used many of the poultry nets over the years, all of which work very well. The hog fence exceeded my expectations in durability and utility. I am able to control grazing of forest land to help improve my timber stands while providing high quality forage for my hogs. I plan on ordering many more of these.

Fencing works great. pigs trained to it easily. the rigidity of the vertical stays makes this fence a better choice than the poultry netting (another company's). very fast to move, we are relocating 3 pigs every 2-3 days and it takes only a few minutes.
the ability to move the lower strand up and down helps with the pigs rooting and uneven terrain

My husband was skeptical and gave me a hard time when I wanted to purchase this fencing. I ended up buying it away...for our four pigs. Bought the pigs when they were only 40 lbs...AND NEVER once did they get out. When they were little...they tested every INCH of the fence and then hardly ever again. Every once in awhile they would push dirt up on the fencing...to be unsuccessful! BEST FENCING EVER! Can't wait for this years' pigs!! Also purchasing the chicken fencing! I am hooked!!!!

I have a Hampshire show gilt who is absolutely beautiful, but had no respect for any fence (including electric). I had tried hog panels (she jumped them) and I tried strands of electric fence, (still jumped them). Pig QuikFence was my last resort for her. I hooked the P30 up to 3 rolls of the Pig QuikFence, she touched it once and hasn't touched it since!
I have since bought at least 10 more rolls of it :)
A perfect product for this use; Recently our pigs outgrew their pen and we opted to transfer them to swamp and brush pasture on our farm. Boy was it horrendous trying to get them to the new Pig QuikFence pen from their old pen- the 300lb animals darted all over for quite an intense pig scramble. Luckily we had the quikfence on our side. After guiding each pig into the pen, we allowed them to get shocked once on the fence and that's all it took to deter them further. Once we had corralled all of them to their new pasture, the Pig QuikFence instantly became our preferred housing method. It certainly does hold-up to grounding as mentioned. Only large stumps and turf mounds on the netting will ground it. We will be purchasing much more of this product especially with its very economic pricing and high performance.
