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 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.
Okay, I now have poultry netting, sheep netting, and pig netting. Does Premier make "child" netting? : )
The pig netting is exactly what we needed! We run our pigs in movable pasture/woods paddocks, and have lots of twigs, etc. that can interfere with a fence. We had been using sheep fencing, which worked fine, but the pigs would root and cover up the bottom strand, or debris would otherwise end up shorting out the fence.
This product solves that problem. It is extremely easy to set up. I will definitely be buying more.
Once again, thanks, Premier, for helping to make rotational grazing so simple and enjoyable!
This is another one of those products that leaves you wondering why nobody has invented this before. I put a bunch of feeder pigs in a pen made with this. Every one of them had to touch it. A couple went through it. Got everybody put back in, re-energized it and have had absolutely no problems since. The entire training process took about 5 minutes. The height is perfect to easily step over to check feeders, etc.
