What is a pasture fence?

With a pasture fence you herd cattle, horses, pigs, chickens or other animals. This way, no animals can escape and they stay in the pasture area you have defined.

In addition, your animals are protected against attacking wild animals such as wild boars or foxes.

In most cases, a pasture fence is electrified. With the help of an electric fence energiser, electricity is then passed through the fence, making your fence even safer.

For which animals are there pasture fences?

Pasture fences are available for many different types of animals:

  • Cattle
  • Horses
  • Sheep
  • Goats
  • Pigs
  • Chickens
  • Geese
  • Small animals (rabbits, dogs, etc.)

With 4 questions to the right pasture fence

Question 1: Which animals do you herd?

Depending on the size and sensitivity of your animals, you will need to adjust your pasture fence accordingly. If you herd large and robust animals such as cattle or horses, you need a high pasture fence with powerful electrification.

For chickens, geese, rabbits or similar animals that are smaller and more sensitive than cattle or horses, you need a close-meshed net. This way, these animals cannot slip through the fence. In addition, the current required is lower for chickens or other small animals.

Question 2: Should the fence be mobile or always stay in the same place?

If you change your pastures frequently or want to use the fence at horse shows or other events, we recommend lightweight fence posts made of plastic or fibreglass.

For permanent fences that will stay up all year round, go for fence posts made of steel or recycled material.

Question 3: Is your ground firm or rather soft?

If the ground is dry and hard, we advise you to use an angle steel post. This pile can be driven powerfully into the ground thanks to a stable double tread.

If your ground is rather soft, T-post piles or piles made of recycled material provide a stable hold.

Question 4: Do you have access to a power socket?

If you have a fixed fence with permanent access to a socket, a 230V electric fence unit is the best choice for you.

This device plugs directly into the socket and thus provides the power you need for your pasture fence.

For mobile use or without access to a socket, a 12V electric fence with rechargeable batteries is the best choice for powerful pasture fences.

For pasture nets or fences that are only used for small paddocks, a battery-powered 9V electric fence is sufficient.

You will need these fencing accessories for your fence

Electric fence energiser: An electric fence energiser supplies your fence with electricity. If you have access to a socket, you should use a 230V electric fence unit. If you don't have access to a socket, you can choose between a 12 V fence unit (for powerful fences) and a 9 V fence energiser (for weaker fences).

Pasture fence posts: Depending on whether you want your pasture fence to be mobile or always in the same place, there are special pasture fence stakes. Stakes made of plastic or fibreglass are particularly suitable for mobile use, while pasture fence stakes made of steel or recycled material are perfect for fixed fences.

Conductor material: The conductor material is responsible for ensuring that the electric current can flow unhindered through your pasture fence. For larger animals, wide fence tapes are ideal, while for smaller animals, a thinner fence rope will probably suffice.

Insulators: There are special insulators for each conductor material. These insulators prevent electric current from being discharged unintentionally into the ground. Ring insulators are mainly used for strands and ropes, while tape insulators are more suitable for wider pasture fence tapes.

Connectors: In order to connect your conductor material and thus form a continuous fence, you need suitable connectors. Your conductor material (wire, ribbon, rope or strand) determines which type of connector you need. There are special wire connectors, ribbon connectors, rope connectors and polywire connectors.

Earthing: For safety reasons, a pasture fence must always be earthed. For this you need suitable accessories such as earthing rods, earthing cables or underground cables.
