Electric Fencing Systems

This training session took place on Wednesday, May 13. The presentation, which can be downloaded, focused on using electric fencing as an effective method of controlling livestock on most farms. Electric fencing systems offer two major advantages over other types of fencing, such as lower costs and ease of construction.

For those who were unable to join us, a video recording of the training is available. For extension agents, these recordings can be found on the Natural Resources Channel in the KSRE Resources Team on Microsoft Teams. For any others who are interested in watching the training, please contact KCARE for the video link.
