That had never crossed my mind... I am DEFINATELY going to look into that.If tht neighbor keeps claiming that the cows are out, how about putting GPS trackers on them? Then you can check their whereabouts during the day. Knowing where they are at all times might take some stress off.
I still have to google the charger I have on the wall to do some research on it's specs - but I'm seriously considering switching it out for this one.And what I learned from checking into the chargers for the electronetting is that when the charger rating tells you how many miles the chargers will electrify, they mean charging only one wire carrying a charge. If you are using 2-3 wires, the charger will only perform half or 1/3 of the distance.
We don't like electric fence because it requires a lot of maintenance for us. Steep hillsides, rocky soil, heavy brush where the sheep don't eat (like right under the electric wires) means we have to clear under the wires. Here it is impossible to do. We also need the higher fence for the dogs. In Texas on flat grass fields, hopefully we will be able to keep the fence lines clear with weed whacking. We will brush hog first, then install the temporary fence and clean under the fence when necessary. We are hoping that we will only have to use the electric fence until we can get approved to put in permanent fence.
