Electric fencing For Pigs
Pigs can be effectively contained using electric fencing and it is used on vast scales with large pig farms, especially in East Anglia. As with all electric fencing, it is the most cost effective form of fencing, especially on a larger scale.
Pigs are very sensitive and soon learn to respect an electric fence.
Some breeds of pigs have a tendency to “bulldoze”, you need to ensure that earth doesn’t mound up and short the bottom fence line. Naturally if piglets need containing an extra, lower wire may be required. It is worth being able to temporarily disconnect the bottom line if this happens, so it gives you time to rectify this while maintaining power on the rest of the fence.
