The morning session will concentrate on portable and semi-permanent electric fence systems and their applications, including a discussion of intense rotational grazing, a superior method of pasture management. This includes polywire, rope and tape systems for horses, cattle, and sheep as well as wildlife control. Participants will familiarize themselves with fence building techniques by actually putting up and taking down electric netting and reel systems, and will learn the importance of a good grounding system. There will also be a discussion of battery and solar energizers, volt meters, gateways, and most importantly, how to educate animals to electric fence. This session may take place indoors if weather dictates. We will finish up with a discussion and tour of low tension semi-permanent fences.
The afternoon session will focus on the construction of permanent fencing solutions such as fixed knot woven wire fence, electric high tensile smooth wire. Attendees will have an opportunity to participate in the building of a brace assembly as well as the stretching, splicing and tying off of woven wire fence.
You are welcome to come for either or both sessions. Bring your own lunch or visit one of the local cafes within 3 miles. Remember to dress warmly as most of the clinic is conducted outdoors. The clinic will be held rain or shine.
