Electrified Fencing Tips for Cattle Farmers

Mytee Products sells a variety of products for agricultural operations including fence energizers and fence wire, tape,

and braid. Though we are not experts in agriculture, we do know that choosing the right components for an electric

fence ultimately determines its effectiveness. We also know there are both right and wrong ways to use the fencing

materials we sell.

Experienced cattle farmers already know how to use electrified fencing properly. Anyone new to the cattle game will

have to learn on the job. Thankfully, there is no shortage of online resources that farmers can use to figure out what

they are doing with their fencing. We can offer a few tips as well.

Plan All Your Fencing

The first step in constructing effective fencing is to plan everything. Do not make the mistake of buying your fencing

supplies first, then trying to plan around what you purchased. Creating a plan first allows you to come to Mytee Products

knowing exactly what you need to make your plan a reality.

Your plan should account for where your fencing will be built, whether it will be permanent or temporary, whether it will

be electrified or not, and the total amount of square footage fencing will entail. The total length of any given fence

influences electrification.

Choose the Right Voltage

Electrified fences with inadequate voltage will not do much to deter cattle from grazing too closely. Furthermore, the

length of the fence will affect voltage. That’s why Mytee Products sells a variety of energizers. The farmer needs

energizers that will provide adequate voltage for the entire length of the fence in question. In some cases, multiple

energizers are necessary.

Learn Proper Installation Techniques

It is all well and good to properly plan and purchase the right supplies for electrified fencing. Where most cattle farmers

fall down is in installation. For example, proper grounding is critical to both fence operation and safety. The farmer

should fully understand the fundamentals of fence construction before the project begins.

The farmer who is uncomfortable about attempting a DIY fencing project should not take any chances. A better option is

to work with a colleague who already has experience with electrified fences. Where that is impossible, paying for

professional installation is worth the cost.

Carry out Routine Maintenance

Last but not least is carrying out routine maintenance on electrified fences. Like anything else, fences are subject to all

sorts of harmful things including bad weather, farming equipment, and even large animals that might not be bothered

by the fencing.

Energizers should be inspected and tested on a regular basis. After exceptionally bad weather, energizers might even

have to be looked at for possible repair. You do not know if you don’t check. We recommend patrolling fence lines and

testing energizers at least every few weeks.

Another big part of routine maintenance is fixing breaks. Remember that electrified fencing only works if the circuit that

carries power through the fence remains unbroken. Any breaks in a fence line need to be fixed right away. Cattle

farmers should also be looking for wear or tear that could lead to a break in the future.

Electrified fencing is a great tool for controlling cattle. When fencing is properly installed and maintained, it actually

trains cattle to stay away in much the same way invisible fencing can keep dogs from going outside a specific perimeter.

If you are looking to install electrified fencing for your cattle operation, do not hesitate to contact us. We will be more

than happy to answer questions about our energizers and other electrified fencing supplies.
