Buying Electric Fence

So I am going to raise chickens and possibly a goat.

Since my land is 1/3 acre and I have 2 neighbours, I will need some electric fence for sure. The Scotian Gold Country Store sells electric net fencing for about $430. Here's the break-down of what I wrote down over the phone (I could be wrong...)

50 x 1m mesh E-Fence $239.00
ground rods                    $  19.00 each
poles                              $  14.00
Ties                               $    3.29
Plug-in energizer             $  90.00

Be prepared!   :)
