Sheep & Goat Net 9/35/7
A budget-friendly, prefabricated fence that has 9 horizontal twines (8 conductive); is 35" tall installed, and has string verticals every 7".
White PVC posts are built into the mesh every 13.6 ft. The result, when energized properly, is a nearly impenetrable mesh to sheep, goats, coyotes and dogs.
How does it compare to ElectroNet®?
- Weaker posts spaced further apart (13.6' vs. 12.5').
- Has string verticals every 7" instead of plastic struts every 12". String is more prone to sagging but the closer vertical spacing is better for controlling foxes, lambs and goat kids.
- Has 10 times more electrical resistance (380 Ω/1000 ft) so it's less suited for fences more than 500 ft long.
- Yellow color is not as visible against all backgrounds as white/black.
New for 2022! Now available as a Pos/Neg fence for dry, sandy or rocky conditions. Ideal for situations when there is too little moisture in the soil to properly ground the fence.

* Pos/Neg (PN) fences are recommended where the soil is very dry and/or the animals do not ground well. Two clips are used at each end. One is hooked to the energizer, the second should be connected to a ground rod.
Tip: When using Pos/Neg fencing, a PowerLink is recommended to attach the negative lead to the ground rod.
It is best to have animals trained to electric fencing before you turn them out in the net only. 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 posts to bend or break if inserted with force. Pilot holes may be needed.
Start by measuring the voltage at the end of the fence line. If the voltage is below 3000V, follow these steps to determine if the problem is with the fence, or the energizer.
Test the energizer first!
- Turn off the energizer.
- Disconnect the wires going to the fence and ground stake/rod.
- Turn the energizer back on.
- Measure the voltage on the energizer between the two terminals (positive and negative) with a digital voltmeter or other high-voltage tester. Touch one end to “-“ (earth terminal) and the other end to “+” (fence terminal). The reading tells you how well the energizer is working without any other variables.
- If the tester reads below 5000V, then the energizer (or possibly the battery) is the problem. If the voltage is above 5000V, then the trouble lies with your fence.
If the fence is at fault:
- Conductors touching another wire, steel post or the soil
- Broken or damaged insulators

In order to receive a shock from a Pos/Neg fence, the animal must touch both a positive (hot) and negative (grounded) strand at the same time. This will deliver more pain to the animal than an all hot net (Pos/Pos) because moisture in the soil is not required to complete the circuit.

We like this netting for our goats so much that we’ve ordered it three separate times. It is so functional and sturdy. This allows our goats to safely forage areas that we need to have cleaned up. Great product! Order plenty of those sturdy FiberTuff posts to firm up the netting, especially when going downhill.

Love this fence, it’s so easy to set up. I don’t know how hot it is, we tied it in to our current electric fence, but our pigs did get zapped enough to back off. It’s easy to stretch out—I’m 8 months pregnant and set it up by myself in the heat. We use it for calves and KuneKune pigs currently and they all respect it. If you think it’s sagging just buy some cheap step-in posts, they work great!

Sags and tangles easy. I’ll stick with regular sheep net.

Simple installation and great bang for your buck. We are first time goat “parents” so we’re learning as we go. We have a female Spanish doe and a mostly Kiko buckling just weaned. He has stayed put, but the Spanish has already jumped it! Not fun chasing her down but I bet our neighbors had a good laugh watching us.

I love this fence! So easy to put up I can almost do it by myself and I am “handicapped.” My goats touched it once and have never tried again. Even the Nubians. I just use a small solar box with it. I just ordered roll 5 and 6. It’s the best fencing ever.
