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.
