Electric fencing for Hogs

Electric fencing for Hogs (pigs) is becoming more and more popular with hogs commonly being kept outdoors as the worldwide demand for free-range meat increases.

There is a risk in some areas that free-range hogs can come into contact with wild boars, and become contaminated with swine fever. So, a reliable, safe electric fence to keep your hogs in and wild boars out is a wise investment.

High Tensile fence for pigs

We recommend a three-wire system with a distance between posts of 10 metres as a minimum for a permanent (interior) fence for free-range pigs. Bear in mind that in some areas you also need an exterior fence (to prevent contamination with swine fever by loose wild boars). A seven-wire system with a distance between posts of 12 metres provides a reliable permanent exterior fence for free-range pigs. It should be positioned four metres from the interior fence.

High Tensile is a very durable, permanent fence. It will easily last 20 to 25 years, which makes it very suitable. Combined with a powerful Gallagher fence energizer, you will have optimum electrical conductivity.

Fence Configuration - Hog

The number of free-range hogs and pigs is growing. Gallagher recommends a three-wire system for hogs and pigs. Combine this high tensile fence recommendation with a powerful Energizer and you'll have a durable, protective fence that will last many years.

Mobile fence for pigs

A mobile fence is ideal as a temporary, or easy-to-move, enclosure. Very suitable for subdividing large plots for your (free-range) pigs. At FenceFast we offer several options from electric netting to a three-wire system with a distance between posts of 10 metres as a moveable fence for free-range pigs. Depending on the type of pig, one or two wires may be enough. Bear in mind that in some areas you also need an exterior fence (to prevent contamination with swine fever by loose wild boars). As a rule, the minimum distance between the interior and the exterior fence should be four metres. Pigs are also rooters and can often bury the bottom of netting so if you want to use the added security of using portable netting have a secondary 1 or 2 wire poly fence set a couple of feet inside the netting can help prevent your pigs from shorting out the netting this will also give you a secondary barrier if you have any wild hogs running loose in your area.
