Cattle-panel gabion fence corners for electric fence
Location: Mille Lacs, MN
posted 3 years ago
I live in zone 3b, with heavy frost heaving. Everyone's fences around me are pushed crooked.
I want to do a high-tensile electric
as my perimeter to keep livestock in, but mainly keep wolves,
and coyotes out.
The preferred method for
corners in my area is by encircling a
panel Are tying with heavy duty wire and then filling with large rocks. (I have a lot of large rocks).
I like this idea, but only have concern for making the fence corners themselves electrified so that predators don't just climb the gabions.
I can envision a good way to connect high tensile to it to extend a side of the property, but I need some good ideas for making the corners/gabions electrified.
See attached photo as an example.
