I do see some are using it, however.
I should follow up on this and mention I have since put my meaties inside my Premier1 netting and it is working great.
164' isn't nearly enough though. I'm going to run two nets for meaties, and at least 4 for my layers once I move them to the back pasture. Right now we are just exiting (we hope) a drought, and my pasture is subpar, so they go through the smaller section way too fast. Three or four days max and I have to move it. Hope it will be better when our pastures recover.
On energizers, joules are what matter. For chickens .05 should be fine. For goats, you need something with more kick, so I have a 3 joule charger that I also have my poultry netting attached to. But gauge your rating to what you want to keep out as well as keep in.
