Electric Fence Installation & Earthing
Earthing Electric Fence
Many farmers are needlessly reducing the effectiveness of their electric fences by failing to EARTH them adequately.
Almost seventy-five percent of poor results are directly due to FAULTY EARTHING SYSTEMS.
Common causes of poor results are:
- Insufficient earth rods.
- Badly jointed wires.
- Poor connections to earth rods.
- Earth rods too close together.
- Earth rods not long enough.
