Nowadays, there are numerous types of an electric fence available in the market, while it is a good thing to have numerous options it can also cause confusion most especially for people who are new to electric fences. There are many things to consider before you purchase one, the livestock you have, the type of charger you need (will you need an electric or a solar electric fence?), as well as the controller and electric fence insulator.
One of the basics in installing an electric fence is that it has to be compatible with your ground, if you do not have proper grounding then the fence will not work effectively. The electric fence controller should be connected to a grounding system same as the wires of the fence, through this, an open circuit will be created. If it all works together properly, then the system will work instantaneously, giving animals a shock if they try to go beyond the fence. Also ensure that the battery is always fully charged to keep the whole system running, if you would want to save extra bucks from electric bills, solar panels will be your best option.
