Goats are often full of fun and personality. They’re one kind of livestock that tends to blur the lines between friendly pets and farm animals. It’s their playful personality that often makes containing these animals a little more challenging. While many farmers prefer field fencing, adding electric wire can provide a cost-effective, flexible fencing option that keeps predators out and goats in.
Woven wire field fences are generally the most durable option for most uses on the farm, including goats. The only problem is that goats can really put them to the test with climbing, pushing, and jumping. Adding an electric fence to the mix helps enforce respect for your fence boundaries, among many other benefits. Let’s take a closer look at why you should consider adding electric wire to your goat fence.
