Do any of you have a top brand/model of electric goat netting? Any tips on whether I should buy some or not? Should I purchase goat or poultry size for full size dairy does, bucks, and kids?

Would this work for goats?

For netting we have kencove. Jave had it almost five years now and we almost always have something in a net. It is still holding up wonderfully. We also use a galagher smart fence for the bucks in the woods. The netting is such a pitb to set up in woods. But with the galagher you do not have to trim everything like with the netting.

To those that use it, would something like that work near a creek edge? How long does it usually last?


thanks
You should be able to just fine. We have had ours for 5-6 years and it's held up great. Just watch how you store it if you do as mice will chew on it.We don't use ours full time, it's moved around and set up for various things.

Thanks for replying! Is the galagher easy to set up and move for
grazing rotation?

is it more resistant to weeds etc so you do not have to trim the grass? Thanks really curious as we hav an area that washes out with high rains and conventional t post have been a challenge.
