Stray Neutral-to-Earth Voltage (NEV)

Stray NEV Definition

Stray voltage is a small voltage (usually less than 10 volts) that is measured between two points a livestock animal can simultaneously contact. If these points are simultaneously contacted by a livestock animal, a current will flow. The amount of current depends on the voltage and the circuit impedance, which includes the source, contact, and body impedances. Livestock respond to the resulting current flow and not to the applied voltage.
