How long do you operate at a stretch?  Is turning off the electric fence 
during operating times impractical?

I had thousands of linear feet of electric fencing (including, if not 
especially, the top strand - for horses.)  My experience was that the 
fence became more of a training device (like the Invisible Fence for 
dogs) than a deterrent.  After the livestock (and we had all kinds) 
learned where the fence was - they stayed away.  Even when the fence was 
off.  In fact, in later years, we had large sections of electric fencing 
that had become inoperative.  Our critters (the same individuals) acted 
like it was up and running.  (But, if we through a new guy in, then we 
had a problem - he didn't know the "routine.")
