Protect your garden and livestock, fencing options

by on March 26, 2018 in Ag Com, Home Page

Saturday, March 31st at 11am in the Nelson library with Tiger Batchelder

Ranchers first started using electric fences more than a hundred years ago as a way to  keep cattle in and keep them from being injured by barbed wire. Here in Nelson electric fencing has saved many a garden from woodchucks and deer. Simple fences help chickens and sheep roam protected from predators.
