Here are seven of the most common errors in livestock fencing, and how to avoid them. Whether you’re an experienced man or just learning the basic knowledges of wood, wire and tape, there's always something more to learn when it comes to livestock fencing. Tianze company is going to share seven most common cattle fencing mistakes. Today, we will share the third one: Using the wrong sized energizer.
Tianze recommends 1 joule of output per mile of fence, regardless of how many strands of wire. With a total of six miles of fence, you need at least a 6-joule energizer.
How to fix it: Tianze recommends a low-impedance energizer, with a low-amp fuse. “The larger the energy, the smaller the voltage,” as larger energizers are apt to power through more vegetation and short out. Tianze considers 7,000-8,000 volts high for an energizer.
