Level 1: Essentials
In a construction project, the goal is to build it once and be done. This goal also applies to fencing projects. With increased interest in high stock density grazing, it is important to incorporate a degree of flexibility for grazing management.
This field day is for producers interested in new fence construction using the quality fencing materials available today, including fencing to accommodate high stock density grazing. Join us for a day of demonstrating all of the possibilities in fencing. As a bonus, we will be installing a livestock watering system for a managed grazing system.
For anyone interested in seeing further fencing demonstrations, we will depart from the Pavilion at 1 p.m. and travel to Noble Research Institute’s Red River Grazing Facility. This part of the event is optional but open to all participants.
