Electric fencing for alpacas

Gallagher offers unique, safe alpaca electric fencing systems that cater for the specific needs and social nature of alpacas. Electric fencing for alpacas is a safe, economical and long-lasting alternative to sheep mesh, non-electric or dangerous barbed wire fencing. Gallagher offers a full range of alpaca electric fence options. Select from permanent (high tensile) or portable fence systems or an offset fence which allows electrification of existing fences.

High tensile fencing for alpacas

High Tensile is a very durable, permanent fence. It will easily last 20 to 25 years, and it’s very suitable as fencing for alpacas. Combined with a powerful fence energiser, you will have optimum electrical conductivity. Gallagher recommends a six-wire system for a permanent alpaca fence. This system is based on a unique concept of fixed and non-fixed posts, such as the High Tensile sheep fence. The only difference is that the height has been adapted to alpacas, with a fence height of 1.26m.

Our advice Permanent enclosure for alpacas?

Then use High Tensile. A distance between posts of 10 metres, and every 40 metres a 2.00m fixed post with non-fixed posts (1.26m battens) in-between;. Gallagher recommends Insultimber posts, which have pre-drilled holes at the correct heights; Insultimber is very hard-wearing, and comes with a 10-year guarantee on Insultimber posts; Put the first wire close to the ground. The High Tensile wire is tensioned tightly by means of rotating tensioners. Tension springs are fitted to neutralise tension differences caused by temperature fluctuations.

Mobile fencing for alpacas

Do you want to put up a temporary or mobile fence for alpacas? For example, divide a large plot into two smaller ones? Or perhaps you have a rented field you want to enclose? Gallagher offers a simple and easy-to-fit solution suitable for alpacas. This system consists of posts, wire and a fence energiser. Gallagher recommends the stirrup post in combination with 12.5mm tape or cord. The top wire is fitted at a minimum height of 1.20m. That is high enough for alpacas. Combined with a Gallagher energiser the fence is electrified.
