I was very careful to protect my wiring from the cows. Didn't think mice. I'm working on new feeder now. I'll go with more protection on this one. I advise always going 12 v solar. Offers twice the power of 6 v solar but costs about the same. I use Covert's 6 v down converter cable for the cameras. One solar pole can handle the whole site. Power for Warn Winch to winch up feeder, power for cameras, power for hog lights. Just depends on how much wiring you want to bury.
I have a short attention spa
