Precautions for using electronic fences

PROGRESSIVE CATTLE – Electric fencing changed the game for cattle producers and sustainability on pastureland. Selecting the correct type of fencing for your operational goals impacts the efficiency of your forage and protects resources on your land. Temporary electric fencing gives cattle owners more flexibility in their management, says Amanda Courtney, owner of Live Wire Products. Different seasons and changing weather conditions are easier to handle with electric fencing because cattle can be moved quickly and easily, she says. “I can isolate and set up 5 acres [of fencing] in an hour.”
