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.
