After building the Mobile Sheep Shed, the next step is to setup the electric fence for better pasture management. We sub-divide the 2 acre pasture into 4 smaller lots, using electric wire and step-in post. This year, I upgraded the charger into a “all-in-one” unit by Parmak.
It is always a good idea to use a more powerful (more joule/energy output) unit that one can afford. This unit does not come with any lead wire so I have to make my own. Also, a ground rod placed 3 feet away from the charger is a must for any electric fence system.
