Electric Fence Systems
An electric fence is a psychological barrier that keeps livestock in and predators out – even over long distances. A pulse of electric current is sent along the fence wire, about one pulse per second, from an energizer (a.k.a. fence charger or fencer) which is grounded. When an animal touches the fence, it completes the circuit between the fence and the ground receiving a short, sharp but safe shock. The shock is sufficient to keep the animal away from the fence.
Because the fence is a psychological barrier, it does not require great physical strength. However, it must be well designed and constructed to absorb some pressure from animals, snow, and wind. The energizer must have enough power for the length of the fence and for the animals being controlled.
