There are times when you just need to put up a fence for a period of time and you do not want to make it permanent. You need a temporary electric fence to get the job done of keeping in your livestock while you are figuring out what to do with them. The Gallagher Smart Fence is perhaps the Rolls Royce of portable electric fences.
You really do not want to put up barbed wire fencing just for a temporary fence. Try stringing that without a tractor or think about how you will feel, having done the hard work and then taking it down so quickly afterward. Even many electric fences are a pain in the back to haul around and fuss with. When you are dealing with livestock the last thing you want to spend your time on is fiddling with the technology because it is bulky and awkward. Think twice before you settle on a solution.
If you compromise on the product or you turn to a more traditional solution, your animals will have a heyday and you will be kicking yourself because you did not get what was needed for the job.
If you are on a trail ride you will need something lightweight and quick to set up. Electric fence installation is a major factor in selecting the right portable electric fence. Check any of the many feed stores online, and you will discover many possibilities. In the end, the Gallagher is one of the best choices.
