How does the Pivot Post work?
The Pivotal Fencing System™ is all about flexibility in both literal and figurative terms. The key to the system is the Pivotal Fence Post™, a fiberglass post fitted and fixed to a spring-loaded cast aluminum base. By anchoring the Pivotal Fence Post to the ground with a steel t-post and attaching electric wire to the post with cotter-keys, an electric fence can easily be constructed in any type of terrain-a fence that will bend but not break.
Consider pasture grown with center pivot irrigation, for example. With the Pivotal Fencing System, an irrigated circle can be cross-fenced into as many grazing cell as a producer wants. With the use of the system's Wire Diverters attached to the sprinkler, it moves around the circle in either direction, approaches the fence, bends it down, rolls over it and the fence springs back into place.
Likewise, the inherent flexibility of the Pivotal Fencing System means that native pasture and dry land used for forage can be easily cross fenced with electric wire without the threat of livestock or wildlife knocking the fence down.
