Electric Fencing:
Electric fencing became widely available in the 1950s and has been widely used both for temporary fences and as a means to improve the security of fences made of other materials.

Since, an electric fence is a physiological barrier, not a physical one, respect for the fence is the key to its effectiveness. Once trained, animals do not usually come into contact with the fence again.

Essential Components:
An electric fence has four essential components - an energizer to supply and regulate the pulse, wire to carry the pulse, posts to
support the wire, and insulators to prevent voltage loss where the wire is anchored to a post.

To be effective, an electric fence has to deliver a minimum guard voltage to overcome the insulation resistance of the hide and hair of an animal. In addition, once the insulation resistance of the animal is overcome, the controller must deliver a pulse of electrical energy to the animal to create a shock.
