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.
Netting must be moved when tall grass covers the lower “hot” strands. The alternative? Apply a strip of herbicide to kill vegetation.
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 netting. We do not recommend the use of electric netting during harsh winter conditions—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.

The gates are easy to install, and easy one hand entry. Convenient because you’re always carrying something. I use an extra T-post between the fence and the gate to make it even more tight and secure. I use Premier 1 fence for cattle and chickens, the gate works great for both. I have a lot of Premier 1 products and they all are quality products that work very well.

This is such a game changer to my chores. It’s so easy to use. I can still keep the fence on and get into the pen without turning the electricity off. I want to get one for each of my pens now! So happy.

I have 3 of the 4 ft gates. Makes it easy to get in and out. If you don’t want to turn off the power you don’t get shocked. I don’t have to step over, or pull up a post from the ground.
It was a good purchase for me as I don’t move my fences very much.

Game changer for checking the chicken coop as often as I do. The gate sets up fast and easy. The instructions did not make it clear that I only needed to have the ground connection and the hot end connected to one side of the fence. That keeps the fence hot when you open it and I don’t have to turn the power off and on. Great for folks who forget stuff now and then. Nice setup for one-handed open and close.

Nice addition to our PoultryNet Plus 12/48/3 Starter Kit. No problem using it one-handed, squeeze the posts together and lift up the handle. We’ve only been using it for about 2 weeks so we’ll see how long it lasts. I will make one change. I’ll be adding a spike at the bottom so that when I open it, I can stick it in the ground instead of laying it down or leaning it against the fence.
