Electric Fencing Videos

Electric fencing is an effective way to control livestock on most farms.  It offers two major advantages over other types of fencing, cost, and ease of construction.  When purchasing components for your fence, buy the best quality that you can find, something that will last the life of the fence.  Approach electric fence construction with the same frame of mind and the same skills as you would with any electrical wiring.  Getting shocked by a low impedance charger won't kill you, but you may think you're dead.
