Electric Deer Fence Workshop

electric deer fence workshopLuke Freeman hosted a workshop at the incubator farm in Fayetteville, AR to demonstrate the use of the solar-powered electric deer fence. Luke built the fence with help from Extension specialist Kenny Simon and County Agents Ryan Neal and Colin Massey. The workshop was an opportunity to use the fence as a teaching tool for the broader community. Kenny was the main presenter. He talked about electric fence components and how to set up and operate an electric fence configuration to exclude deer. Ryan presented on food safety considerations with wildlife and fresh produce. It was a short two-hour workshop, but participants were able to ask a lot of questions and familiarize themselves with the 3-D deer fence configuration. Kenny is an excellent educator and did a great job of explaining how the electric fence works and all the components needed. If you couldn't make the workshop, we'll have a video of the demonstration available soon! Stay tuned to our Facebook page, where we'll post a link. - https://www.facebook.com/NCATSoutheast/

Is there a reason the State of New York stopped selling hemlock seedlings? I'd made up my mind that I'd like to plant a hundred, maybe more, for my grandsons to enjoy, but find no source. Continue
