Electric fencing for sheep
Unlike many other animals, sheep can be outdoors almost all year round. This is one of the reasons why a safe sheep fence is very important.
It is important to set clear boundaries with a good sheep fence. The wool insulates and makes sheep more insensitive to electricity compared to other animals. Therefore, make sure you have a good fence so that your sheep can't escape.
Sheep are constantly on the move. If your sheep do not always graze in the same place, you can choose movable fencing. The two most common solutions for this are SmartFence and sheep netting.
