Free Lecture: Modern Fencing Options – The Fast & Easy, The Permanent and Economical

Bill Sears, a long time member of the American Society for Testing and Materials, ASTM, and of the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, ASABE, with over forty years of fencing experience and nearly that many in the fencing business and as a Festival exhibitor, will discuss the options for permanent and for temporary and portable fencing; the pros and cons of each type; and some techniques and tips to “make life easier” and “performance better” for your fencing projects for sheep, goats, poultry, cattle, and horses too.

A recent fence booklet with detailed fence specifications, some hands on wire handling, a look at FAST FENCE™ electric netting and tape systems, and a question and answer period will all be provided.  Come and learn from the experience and mistakes of an old pro.

Thank you!

Another Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival has come and gone, and we could not have done without all of you – Festival goers, volunteers, Festival Committee members, shepherds, and participants in so many activities, competitions and demonstrations! It is amazing to see this come together with all categories of participants contributing to its success. We tried some new things this year, and had a little bad weather to deal with, and we appreciate everyone’s understanding, support, and good cheer. Thanks to everyone for participating in our 44th celebration of all things sheep & wool! We are already thinking about how to do even better next year!

In Peace,

Gwen Handler, Chairman, Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival

Lee Langstaff, President, Maryland Sheep Breeders Association
