Properly constructed and maintained electric and non-electric fencing can play a significant role in preventing predation on farm animals. It is THE FIRST protection that you need to focus on. Like any other animal husbandry practice you use on your farm, your fencing should respond to your particular situation.
Consider the following:
Your farm animals
Carnivores present (large herbivore presence as well)
Human behavior toward the carnivores
Availability of carnivores’ wild prey
Terrain, forested and vegetative conditions
Size of your pastures
The options below give you a place to start after you have thoroughly reviewed your farm situation. Notice that electric fencing is often included below. We will be sharing more specific information about successful electric fencing, so please return and find out more!
