A Proven Choice
Electric High-Tensile is a economical choice for the practical farmer. It's affordable, quick installation and easy maintenance means its a go to choice for larger rotational grazing systems. Each strand is 12.5 gauge 200,000 psi high-tensile steel. It's a great conductor of electricity. Post spacing can range anywhere from 12' to 45'. The number of strands can also vary greatly from 1 up to 6. This means that a fence can be built for almost any budget.
Electricity is Key
While it is possible to build a smooth strand high-tensile fence without "juice", we always recommend it is electrified. Once trained, animals respect electric fences just as mush as more stout physical barriers. We recommend fence chargers that keep a minimum of 4,000 volts on your fence. If that sounds intimidating do not fret. Fence chargers produce a high voltage, low ampere current which is not dangerous.
A Road to Rotational Grazing
Rotational grazing is a system of pasture management where a larger field is subdivided into smaller temporary grazing cells. Livestock is rotated through these grazing cells which allows the rest of the farm to rest and recover. The result is increased forage production and animal performance. The flexibility to create smaller paddocks with electric fencing is a key component.
