Checking the Health of Your 3D Fence

This video features Van from Bekaert Fencing conducting a health check on a 3 dimensional (3D) fence at the Edible Prairie Project in Wyoming. He explains the fence’s design to deter deer and antelope, its effectiveness, and maintenance tips. The fence uses electric strands and a secondary fence to confuse animals’ depth perception, preventing them from jumping over. Despite being economical, it boasts a 98-99% success rate. The video also demonstrates using a fault finder to test for voltage and grounding issues, ensuring the fence remains effective even in dry conditions.
