Farmers face many problems on a daily basis; adverse weather conditions, sick livestock and so on. But the real danger is wild animals that are attracted by the smell of cattle and other farm animals. As part of our commitment to assisting farmers, we have an extensive range of electric fencing on our website that can be used for various different farm animals such as horses, sheep and poultry. The equipment required for an electric fencer is extensive, and includes gate handles, insulators, netting and far more besides. All of this has been laid out on our site as individual categories, but if you are looking for a package of useful equipments, then check out our electric fence kits such as our electric paddock starter kit. As not everyone will have the same requirements from an electric animal fence, this particular kit has been based around the energiser, which comes with batteries and an adapter cable. The tape, which comes with a single 200 metre roll of 20mm white tape, and posts, of which there are 20 three feet high white poly posts, can then be altered accordingly. Extras are also included such as an electric fence insulator and warning sign, but if you cannot find a kit that exactly match your needs, simply get in touch with us, either by phone, or by dropping us an email which you can do directly on the site, and we will be happy to put one together for you.
Whatever your electric fence requirements we are confident you will be able to find it on our site, which is devoted to supplying farm products. From our solar kits to steel wire, we are proud to stock a range of materials and equipment of a very high standard. For example, if you are in the market for some electric fence plastic posts, then check out our superior green tall posts which are priced at just over twenty pounds; a very reasonable price given the quality. Coming in bundles of ten, these four foot posts have nine loops for both tape and rope, are exceptionally strong with a virtually unbreakable unique footplate, and have a nine millimetre in diameter metal spike making even the hardest of grounds hassle free, and come with a three year warranty. As you can see an electric fencer has many components, which is why all of our products are of top quality, so that you donīt have any weak links in your equipment. Our range of electric cattle fencing we believe to be the best you can find on the market, and for tying posts to each other we have twine and electric fence rope, each with their own set of advantages. The ropes are roughly 5 or 6mm in diameter, and stronger than tape as they are thinner, rounder and wont flap too much in windy conditions and therefore will last longer, with posts being able to be set further apart.
Fencing for Farmers
When it comes to protecting your animals, there is no point considering anything less than the best in terms of electric fencing. This is a philosophy that we strongly believe in, and is why you will find only the best products on the market for sale on our site. Granted, the prices will be slightly higher than average equipment, but we are certain that paying that little bit more will give you piece of mind, which you cannot put a price on. In addition to buying a quality electric fence, it is also important to purchase other related quality equipment, such as electric fence tape. The tape for sale on our site uses stainless steel conductors plus a strong white plastic tape, and is perfect for the majority of short fences. The tape is not specific to any animal, as it has been designed to keep in or out almost every animal. To power your fence properly be sure that your electric fencing energiser has the same requirements as your fence, to ensure it is not weak or even completely useless. From our experience we have found that permanent fences should be fitted with a mains energiser, as long fences need lots of power found only in a mains unit, are better value for money, has better functionality in terms of providing information to its operator, and is safer than a 12v energiser as it is mounted inside an outbuilding as opposed to being left in a field.
Accessories and Equipment
Unless of course you already own all the necessary accessories and other essential equipment for fitting an electric fence, then you may want to peruse our site for some top quality electric fencing equipment and accessories. If you happen to own some farm land near a public footpath then you are required to put up a warning sign to alert passers by as to the dangers of touching your electric fencing. Our warning signs are made from plastic and cost just under a pound for a pack of five. You should buy as many as required given the fact you are required to place one every 50 metres. Amongst a host of useful, although not essential products, is the multi level fence tester. This easy to use piece of equipment will isolate any faults on your fence, and displays voltage anywhere from 600 to 5500 volts. It is useful for testing the output voltage of your fence energiser in addition to the voltage of the fence itself. It can also be used to track down any breaks or faults that may have occurred in your fence. An alternative method is to touch the fence with a blade of grass, but for just under ten pounds, the fence tester is a far more reliable tool. Other electric fencing supplies we have to offer include a replacement live lead, which is a generic lead useful for replacing damaged live leads, and our mini and large reels.
Fencing your pets and other animals
All of the electric fencing and related gear found our site is generally geared towards farm yard animals, such as electric goat fencing. However, if you happen to own a large area of land and want to protect a dog, then check out the invisible dog fencing. As dogs are like small children, unaware of their limits and often capable of unintentional acts of destruction such as traipsing all over flower beds, and are also prone to running away now and again, this useful piece of kit allows you to contain your dog within a defined perimeter, where it can enjoy complete freedom. The product we supply can be adapted to all ground types, open, hilly or fenced for example, and comes with a waterproof collar for the dog and a receiver collar battery with a six month lifetime for normal use. Once used to its full potential the invisible dog fence can be as useful as electric horse fencing, both of which will leave you safe in the knowledge that your pets are well secure and out of danger. Any of the products that you want to purchase are usually dispatched within 24 hours of payment, so if you are in need of a particular product quickly we are confident that we can get it to you in a timely manner. However, we recommend that you take your time choosing an electric fence or related product, as we can boast having plenty of quality products to choose from.
All Fenced In
For farmers with poultry, there are some useful kits all of which have green nets, as orange nets are now only available via special order. Kits contain an A8 energiser as a minimum, which has the power to run 100 metres worth of nets. In respect of electric poultry fencing we have different lengths all of which are ideal for containing ducks, geese, turkeys and all forms of poultry, whilst keeping common predators out, such as foxes, dogs and badgers. The electric fencing is easy to move, so if your birds require new pasture this is no problem at all. The 25 metre electric fence comes with 12 power lines, nine posts and 12 electroplastic twines and can be used with poultry aged six weeks up. If you happen to have pigs or sheep then using standard steel wire is a common practice for electric wire fencing. Our 200 metre roll is a standard 1.5mm thickness and has a 200kg break strain made from seven strands of galvanised steel. This makes the wire a flexible cable, useful for keeping out badgers and foxes. Steel wire should not be used with horses, and is stronger than most similar products. Its low resistance means it can be used for very long fences of 10 kilometres upwards, but is not so easy to work with. If you are looking for an aesthetically pleasing wire then consider twine, as steel wire is not the most attractive in appearance.
