How to Install Electrical Wiring in a Livestock Area

Electrical Wiring Installation Methods for a Livestock Area – The structure electrical wiring should be installed in protective conduit and weather proof boxes, enclosures and covers must be installed.


Electrical Wiring Method for a Livestock Area
Electrical Question:I need some advice on mapping out a new electrical circuit for my chicken coop.

The framing is done, before I insulate I want to put in my boxes & wiring.
Here is the basic wire I am using and what I want in this circuit.
Using 12/2 & 12/3 Yellow Romex wire
4 inside outlets (one on each wall) One of these outlets I want controlled by a switch.
1 overhead light box, center of ceiling, contro1led by a switch
1 outdoor outlet, and 1 outdoor light(will require a switch)
3 Switches to left of door entry.

I need help on where the the power feed should enter this circuit, and explain what type of wire loops need to be created ?

I am planning on feeding this circuit from the power panel in my barn. Using a 20Amp GFI/Arc Fault breaker, running
12/2 UF Cable thru conduit from the barn to the chicken coop. Any issues with running this whole circuit off of a GFI/Arc Fault breaker ?

I’ve done many of my own electrical projects in the past, but this is the first all new circuit.

Thanks for any and all information & replies,

3 Essential Electrical Tips

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wires!

The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester that I use to easily Detect Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.

The Quickest Way to Check for Faulty Electrical Wiring!

The Plug-In Outlet Tester
This is the first tool I grab to troubleshoot a problem with outlet circuit wiring. This popular tester is also used by most inspectors to test for power and check the polarity of circuit wiring.
It detects probable improper wiring conditions in standard 110-125 VAC outlets Provides 6 probable wiring conditions that are quick and easy to read for ultimate efficiency Lights indicate if wiring is correct and indicator light chart is included Tests standard 3-wire outlets UL Listed Light indicates if wiring is incorrect Very handy and easy to use.

Strip Off Wire Insulation without Nicking and Damaging the Electric Wire!

The Wire Stripper and Wire Cutter
My absolute favorite wire stripping tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and this is the tool I use to safely strip electrical wires.
This handy tool has multiple uses:
The wire gauges are shown on the side of the tool so you know which slot to use for stripping insulation.
The end of the tool can be used to grip and bend wire which is handy for attaching wire onto the screw terminals of switches and outlets..

The wire stripper will work on both solid and stranded wire. This tool is Very Handy and Easy to Use.
