Electric fence benefits

   Among the benefits of their use are:
Low costs (a system with 3 wires and solar panel, for a perimeter of 400 m, costs approximately 400€);
Low maintenance costs;
Represent an active barrier that stops the entrance of wild animal;
The electric wires can serve as fence for any perimeter, there isn’t necessary to build another fence, and they can be moved in the same time with the sheepfold;
Animals receive a non-lethal electrical shock and will avoid contacts with the fence; their lives aren’t in danger
