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.

Just put the fence up yesterday and within 10 minutes of it being on, three of them escaped under the bottom. I didn't see how the did it but believe the were trying to escape, got shocked and scooted forward. Caught them with the helpof my premier poultry netting and put them back in the fence. So far they have been zapped a bunch and they haven't got out again. I think they will learn to respect it and will stay a long ways away from the fence.

Perfect combination of physical and psychological barriers for containing pigs. I had tried and failed multiple times to contain our 3 Berkshires with more traditional electric fencing. QuikFence was their last chance at being pasture pigs. They haven't escaped once from the QuikFence, even the short periods when it's been turned off. Just ordered another section. Money well spent. Thank you Premier1.

This is the best purchase we've made in a long time! We initially ordered 1- 100' fence to try it out. It has exceeded our expectations and we will be ordering at least 2-3 more! It literally takes less than 10 minutes to move it.

I could not immediately locate the directions for the fence. So, I jumped right and into installing the fence and felt enromously frustrated. Ironically, when later I did the directions, they said that many people feel they don't need the directions and cause unncessary frustration. Agreed. Love the product, working well now 10 days in...but please make the directions easier to locate.

Easy set up. Pigs still root up against the bottom wire. Have not tested it out in the woods yet, but worked right out of the box. Set up around our barn to train the pigs. Pigs (9 @ 3 month old) respected it right away. Ordered 2 - 100' sections. Going to order 2 more. Get 4 sections right away. It works and is a good price.
