    Our belt and braces approach is to post and rail with wire, and then a line of electric fencing six inches off the ground on 6 inch insulators…..no escapes yet!

    we only use 1 strand of wire when they are used to it i have no problems with gos
    but i am fully fenced around the whole farm
    so if they were to get out no problems
    usaly if they have all they need you get no problems
    and at the moment i have not had a fence on for about 3 weeks
    and keep 15 well grown gilts and sows and a boars out side in 4 pens
    and not a prob

    suits me as i can move pens quickly
    but if the pen is to stay there a good fence will be fine but also use electric as they may reck the fence in time
