Electric netting has become increasingly popular for contract/prescription grazing projects. its appeal lies in the fact that it provides not only the psychological barrier, but also some measure of physical barrier. We have found that if the fence is properly built, well grounded, and powered by an adequately sized controller (0.5 joules per net recommended) that a netting fence can be effective for livestock inclusion and predator exclusion. Always gather the fence in sections, collecting all the posts in a “bundle.” Once you have collected the last post, shake the netting to straighten, then lie on the ground and roll up the fence!
The Positive Negative netting is a prefabricated fence that has 10 horizontal twines (9 conductive); is 42″ tall installed, and has large white plastic vertical struts every 12″.
White PVC posts are built into the mesh every 12.5′. The result, when energized properly, is a nearly impenetrable mesh to sheep, goats, coyotes and dogs.
42″ x 165′ Positive/Negative: Alternating hot and ground wires. Designed for use in areas of dry, rocky or sandy soil where conductivity is low.
