Handy Hint | Electric Fence

Cut Out Switches (G6076/G6087): These isolate different sections of the fence when looking for faults. Place them at gateways or junctions where either single or multiple fence lines can be turned off.

If you farm sheep intensively, you may want as many as 100 paddocks. This means the sheep can be moved daily onto a fresh paddock using a three month rotation during slow or zero growth periods. When there are lambs and ewes during spring, two or more flocks can be grazed on a faster rotation.

On dairy farms 30–50 paddocks are usually enough. Cattle are easy to strip graze with only one wire when longer rotations are necessary during slow growth periods
