All of my goats are kept in the pasture with 5 strands of electrical wire (3 hot, 2 ground). It's the heavy gauge braided polywire with a heavy-duty 50 mile "zap till your arm goes numb" charger (goes all the way to the top of my 5000 watt fence tester at the furthest point). Everybody respects the fence and does well to avoid it. The buck pen is likewise fenced with 5 strands of electrical and our nearly 5 month old buckling also avoids the wire. We are getting another fb boer buckling this weekend and plan to keep two together for breeding (not each other ), but I'm imagining 200+ lbs bucks during breeding season once they grow up. Will they try to smash through the fence even if they are raised with it and respect it while little? Anybody else used electrical only for a buck pen with success? I can't recall the weight limit on the polywire but I had a horse hit it once and bounce back off like a boxing ring. The t-post bent all over but the wire remained intact. :laugh: Thanks! Just wondering if I need to start looking for cattle or pig panels soon.
