If you currently have livestock or plan on raising livestock in the future, a good fence is a critical component of a successful operation no matter what species of animals. That barrier keeps your animals in the safety of their pasture while (hopefully) keeping predators out. Building a good fence that will last a long time is not near as easy as making the decision that you need a fence. North Carolina Cooperative Extension offices in Granville, Person and Warren Counties are hosting a Fencing School where participants can learn about fencing details in the classroom and then spend the majority of the day outside actually building a fence. The event is sponsored by several fence product companies. The classroom portion will cover fence economics and NC fence law, construction basics, electric fencing basics, and selecting wood fencing products. The majority of the day will be outside building fence.

Please dress appropriately for the weather and bring gloves and eye protection.
