    Both wires are live, Blonde run off the same type of stock fencing unit for sheep and cattle, main or battery charged are equally effective.

    And not a piece of "barbed wire" in sight, hey Blonde!!:D
    It is exactly how I used to do mine on occasions!:D

    There is less effect with the dry ground during summer, but so long as the fences are at least 6000 volts, no pigs go through, the fencing unit is earthed through a metal stake at the position where the unit is sited, I can take a picture if it helps.
    I ran pigs behind polywire in Africa, on kikuyu or stargrass pastures without problems during the dry winter season.
