Greg Judy on How to Use Portable Fence Reels and Set Up Electric Fence Quickly and Easily


Lately I’ve been seeing questions from folks about portable electric fence reels – which ones to use and how to use them. The next question is “Now, how do I use these to set up my fence?” Here are the answers in two great videos from Greg Judy. If you already know all this, consider bookmarking this page to use when you’re training someone new to your operation.

In this 6:06 video Greg covers what makes a good reel, things he’s learned along the way and how to take care of them. He even covers how to fix something that happens to everyone: the polybraid jumps the reel and tangles around the handle. ARRGH!

In this second 11:07 video, Greg shows his 4-wheeler set up and how he and his staff use it to quickly and easily set up new paddocks. He covers everything from how to tie fence posts to the back to the measurements for the reel holder and the special guard that lets him drive over high tensile, electrified fence without getting off. You’ll also appreciate the demonstration of how to use the reel to create a hot fence. Enjoy!

Greg Judy has been creating excellent How-To videos on his Youtube channel for years. You can visit it here. He also offers some great educational opportunities on his website. Check it out!

I am the founder, editor and publisher of On Pasture, now retired. My career spanned 40 years of finding creative solutions to problems, and sharing ideas with people that encouraged them to work together and try new things. From figuring out how to teach livestock to eat weeds, to teaching range management to high schoolers, outdoor ed graduation camping trips with fifty 6th graders at a time, building firebreaks with a 130-goat herd, developing the signs and interpretation for the Storm King Fourteen Memorial trail, receiving the Conservation Service Award for my work building the 150-mile mountain bike trail from Grand Junction, Colorado to Moab, Utah...well, the list is long so I'll stop with, I've had a great time and I'm very grateful.
