Solutions For Retrofitting And Extending Electric Fence

For Small farm
  • Electric Fence Solution For Small Farm

    If your existing fence is with barbed wire, its may with some problems as below:

    *Less-effective to contain your animals in farm.

    *Weather and rust deteriorates the wire.

    *Quickly looks worn and loses its shape due to animal pressure.

    *Can trap your animals.

    Retrofitting the traditional fence to electric fence is one of the efficacious solution for you.

    Electric fences are good for containing livestock and are excellent for keeping predators away.

    *An electric fence works partly as a psychological barrier, rather than solely as a strong physical barrier, it can be made of lighter materials than a non-electric fence.

    *This makes electric fences less expensive and easier to install and maintain.

    *Livestock rarely push or rub up against an electric fence trying to scratch an itch. This makes electric fences last longer.

    Attention:

    Some farmer in order to save cost, electrify an existing barbed wire fence, that is a wrong decision.

    *Electrified barbed wire is dangerous.

    When the electric current passes through an animal (or a homesteader) touching the fence, animal will receive a stronger shock from a skin that is pierced by the barb.

    The charge will be administered straight into moist flesh rather than on the skin surface and as you all know.

    It has numerous sharp points and electricity tends to be discharged into the air from these points more easily than from a rounded surface, this phenomenon called “Corona discharge” in physics.

    Animal could still get caught on the barbed wire portion of the fence and be subjected to repeated shocks.

    How to retrofit the existing fence ?

    If you want reserve the existing fence, you can attach some long or outrigger insulator to wooden or metal post.

    Adding one or several insulator and hot wires on fence post , the height depend on different animals.

    For example, horse height we normally recommend as below :

    Large Horse

    Electric fence for large horse are 0.65 to 1.35m high with 2 to 3 wires

    Small Horse

    Electric fence for small horse are 0.45 to 1.15m high with 2 to 3 wires

    Height Of Fire lines

    The first criterion is setting a fire line according to the height of the nose of the main animal, also can added a fire line setting at the knee, actually the height can obey your horse's body type.(More details please reference solution 1.1).

    Building Electric Fence Gate

    After attaching the insulator and wire to fence, you need build an electric fence gates.which transfer power under the gate from 1 side to the other with an under-gate cable.

    Tips:

    If thorns or grass are taller, if hot wire touched it will caused short circuits, in this situation we recommend pigtail fence post or avoid the hot wire touched the grass and thorns .

  • Extending electric fence to control more animal.

    Background:

    If your existing fence is too small to contain your all animals and you want to increase the activity area of your animal ,extending fence is one of the efficacious solution for you.

    When you plan to extend the electric fence, you may meet some question as below:

    1.Can i energizer need be replaced ?

    2.How can i saving my cost if enlarge the electric fence ?

    3.what do i need to pay attention to ?

    1.Can i energizer need be replaced ?

    The energizer you choose depends on many variables, including the type of animal being controlled, the length of the fence, its location, and even the climate (wet climates can drain energy from the fence and dry climates can cause earthing problems).

    In general, choose a higher powered energizer than you think you need to handle unexpected challenges such as vegetation and to allow for possible future expansion of your fence.

    If your electric fence energizer power is enough to cover the expansion of your fence, use the existing energizer is enough.

    If can not you need purchase a more powerful energizer.You can get more information from the manuals or the supplier of energizer .

    HPS offer 0.5,1, 2, 3.5, 4.8J energizer, the electric distance is 5, 10, 20, 30 and 40km, pulse voltage about 9KV, max can reach to 12KV, nearly can match all animals.

    2.How can i saving my cost if enlarge the electric fence ?

    Wooden electric fence.

    Once wooden post installation, pull wooden post out will spend much labour, time and cost.

    We suggest that farmer should build a independent fence.Not only all wooden post can be reserved, but also the previous wooden post can be as one side of new independent fence.

    If your energizer power is enough, using one pieces of cable connect the hot wire of previous to the new fence conductor.

    If power is not enough please change a more powerful energizer, or purchase a new energizer as power supply for new electric fence.

    3.what do i need to pay attention to ?

    1)Effective Earthing System

    The ground constitutes 50% of the electrical circuit but 90% of all problems originate at poor earthing, either at the earth stake itself or on the fence.

    Copper, Aluminium, Stainless Steel, Copper clad steel or Galvanized steel rods are best in that order.

    2)No voltmeter.

    If the fence is at fault, then there is a process of checking the fence with your tester as you go along.

    Without a voltage meter to check how hot a fence is, The only other way is to use your hand – that hurts.

    3)Bottom wire in contact with heavy, wet vegetation.

    Wet grass will suck lots of juice out of any fence energizer.

    Please buy one that puts out lots of power. During a rainy year, That's when you will need extra power to shock through the heavy, wet vegetation.
