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.

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.

I love this fence; it is so easy to move around my pasture! My pigs got used to the electricity really fast so now I can turn it off to move it during the day and they stay out of the way.
It says not to use it with piglets less than 12 inches tall but if you put some support posts in it you can lower the bottom electrical line so a smaller pig won't get out. You can also adjust the height by moving the bottom line holder up a bit on each post or just one if the ground isn't level. My potbelly pigs haven't been able to bury the bottom strand of wire with all their rooting.

Very quick and easy to put up. No difficulty whatsoever. My 4 1/2 mo old potbelly had been living in the garage and it was time to move outdoors. Set it up, hooked up the juice---dog tested fence and showed me it was working when he jumped back 10 feet---and put the pig in. She proceeded to run to the fence and jump right on through. Hmmmm. Took the 2nd string of 100 ft fencing I bought and lined the inside of fencing #1 but staggered so holes are only 6" or so big (instead of 12")---making her touch fencing for longer. This time she paced and paced the fence and when she couldnt' stand it anymore...she went right on through again. Any other ideas???? Not sure if she is too small or what. On the other hand, my chickens are loving roosting in the cat carrier I have set up in the pen with hay in it..... I am determined to try this again. Not sure why it isn't working for me.

This was my second order of Pig QuikFence. Get four 100ft sections. Four sections allows you to have a two-section paddock with two gates. Then you set up the next two-section paddock and keep moving. Train the piglets to the fence. My pigs have not made it through the fence, although they don't seem to be afraid of the fence as I'd like. I'm using the PRS50 solar charger.

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
