electric fence help
Hi all, I looking to set up around 3km of offset electric fence for added security to house some sheep. I have not dealt with electric fences before and I'm a bit unsure on a few things, although I understand how to set it up. Firstly, If a tree was to fall on the fence pushing steel pickets over allowing them to make contact with live wire will this cause and sparks or potential start a fire? Secondly, will wet vegetation contacting the live wire cause any sparks? Lastly, the fence is in a relatively dry area, can I run my earth lead onto the existing fence as well pickets in the ground?
