Electric fencing heavy galvanized HT wire

Electric Fencing

Galvanized steel wire is flexible and easy to use. It is coated with Zinc to make it rust resistant. Ideal as a “weaving” wire, it is shiny, versatile, and available in a variety of gauges. It can be used for fencing purposes, strengthening an already existing fence or for electric fencing purposes as it is made from high carbon steel.

Electric Fence Energizers

Energizer is the heart of your fencing system, chosen and installed correctly it will control all types of animals. energizers are the source of electrical current to your fence. This is what determines the “zap” when touched, as long as the fence is properly grounded

Types of Energizers

 

  • AC Fence Energizers– The most popular of fence energizers, AC energizers are perfect for large areas of fencing. If a reliable source of 110V or 220V power is available, AC Fence energizers are available for fence lines up to 200 miles long. These energizers provide the best output compared to solar or DC-powered units.
  • DC Fence Energizers– Battery-operated or DC-powered electric fence energizers are ideal for a remote location of your property where an electrical outlet is unavailable. These types of energizers use 12-volt, 4-volt, or D-cell batteries which need to be changed out regularly. The more times the fence is grounded (due to how many times your animals touch it, or if there are weeds touching it), the sooner you will have to replace or charge your batteries. Frequently test your fence to confirm that it is hot.
  • Solar-Powered Fence Energizers– Much like the battery-powered option, solar chargers are best in areas where there is not access to an electrical outlet. These solar units contain a battery for energy storage, while the attached solar panel collects the sun’s energy to charge the battery.

 

Minimum output voltages for different livestock and predator species

SpeciesMinimum VoltageComments
Cattle2000 – 4000Dairy cows are often very quiet and the low end voltage may be sufficient. Bulls can be aggressive and need higher voltage to contain them.
Sheep4000 – 5000Wool is an excellent insulator, so sheep fences need high voltage to ensure the shock is felt.
Goats4000 – 5000Some breeds of goats are well insulated – see comments on sheep
Horses2000 – 3000Stallions can be aggressive and need higher voltage to contain them.
Deer and Elk3000 – 5000
Wolves and Coyotes4000 – 5000Some sources suggest a minimum voltage of 5000 for deterring predators.
Bears5000

The first step in selecting an energizer is to determine your power source. If the fence is close enough, an energizer that plugs into the hydro is often the cheapest and easiest solution. As the fence gets further away from an outlet, running wires becomes expensive and other power options start to look more attractive. Deep-cycling 12 volt marine batteries are another potential power source for an energizer. These work best when you have at least two to swap out – one battery can charge while the other powers the energizer.
