Electric Fencing Advice
Electric fencing is one of the most cost-efficient and flexible ways to fence horses.
Everyone likes to think they are doing amazing things for the environment. Turning to solar power can be a wonderful resource alternative to help power through your everyday obstacles—even when it comes to something of a tradition as keeping in livestock.
You may have the perfect electric fence tape (or wire, or rope), the sturdiest electric fencing posts, the safest insulators, the most accurate electric fence tester, a great fault finder and a backup meter or indicator to boot, but unless you invest in the reliable joints that keep your fence in one continuous electric system, that powerful voltage isn’t going anywhere.
Now that you have your electric fence tape set up, your insulators in place, and your electric fencing posts standing sentinel against wandering farm residents, it’s time to think about an electric fence tester.
Whether you are erecting your electric fence using electric fence stakes, or onto your existing permanent fence stakes with insulators, it is important to make sure the tape, wire or rope has the right tension for it to be effective, using the relevant tensioners for your choice of cable.
Now that you know what type of fence you want and have settled on insulators, live materials, and fence posts, it’s time to think about the little things, those electric fence accessories
We’ve all heard the time-old lesson that there’s more to something than meets the eye, but the electric fence insulator brings that theoretical adage to life. Although electric fence insulators look like small components in the framework of an entire electric fence system, these little pieces of equipment are the key to keeping your farm residents in their home fields.
Before installing your electric fence, you will need to plan not only the area you are covering, and whether you are going to use electric netting or electric fence tape, rope or wire, or but also where the entrance gate needs to be.
