I am in the process of putting an electric fence around our yard. For some time now we have had problems with my brother’s cattle coming in our yard; afterall it has not been that long and our yard was their pasture; so they need a little education.
It rained all day yesterday, and yesterday morning with the help and aid of a friend we went to the local MFA, and I purchased the fence charger, some insulator clips, ground rods, one half mile of wire, clamps for holding the ground wire effectively to the ground rods. I already had a few steel t-posts and a designed fence most of the way around the yard so I am using that is the place for the insulators.
Just for information. This electric fencing is not designed to injure, maim or kill; only to turn them away. It will only deliver an electric shock.
Looking forward to watching it at work.
