Fencing cattle with electric mesh?
I will be getting dexter cattle within two weeks and was planning on using the 48" tall movable electric mesh. Lush pastures here to move around as required to keep them well fed.
I find it strong enough to keep out bears, hoping it will keep cattle in too! I've heard a bit of negativity about it!
As it isn't the sturdiest fencing, and as these cows/heifers have never been trained to electric- I would appreciate any tips you can offer. They'll have been in a trailer from their previous far for about 4-5 hours before arriving here, released direct into their new electric paddock.
I've never had cattle before and losing them could be a rollercoaster here!
Thanks for any suggestions.
