We haven't got one and it's one of the things that people ask about all the time. Could one of the people who uses the stuff write one? Please?

I would offer, but I don't actually know that much about pig fencing, which I reckon most people will be looking for.

Articles can always be from multiple authors or even multi-article. Poultry netting is another area that I bet plenty of members would be interested in.

Good idea.

Even pictures of how to set up the energiser would be good. We made a rubbish job the first time we did it.

I agree, it would have been useful for me as well but I'm not using any at the moment (because I still get completely fed up when I have to put it up). If it would be useful I could take photos of the tapes, energiser and stakes that I use as I think they are not quite the normal ones.

I'll browse my photo archives, see what I've got.

Red Cross, b-minus is how I remembered which way round to connect it (not being an electrical genius )

Probably the best way. If people can take pics and write a bit about what set-up they use and its pros and cons then we can wrangle the whole thing into a coherent literary masterpiece. Possibly. I think .

I have electric sheep netting around my veg plot to keep the bunnies off, is that what you want to know?
Tried a solar powered energiser that was not a lot of good, now have a battery powered thingy that I've borrowed from the gamekeeper.
He uses it to power up the wire around the pheasant pens.
Sheep netting (cheap) doesn't have enough posts, needed to buy extras from Ebay.
I guess it maybe OK if your land is totally flat.

That would be great.

We need loads of photos from people, with loads of different set ups, then we can cobble something together.

Am in a rather sunny mood this morning, so happy to do any necessary wrangling.
