  When I had an E.F. our cows & bull would walk right up and smell
the (stainless steel) wire, (four inches) if the charger was down
they could smell no ozone and would walk right through the wire.
(To get to a pasture that was not as nice as the one they were in,
one eaten down more) Smarter and dumber.

  We changed to barbed wire, works better and no maintenance
headaches (from lightning), but it is no fun to work with.
