Wellscroft Fence Clinic, May 7 & 8

RAFFL

Wellscroft Fence ClinicWellscroft Farm, Chesham NH May 7 & 8, 10:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.

On our farm we have examples of all styles of electrical and woven wire fence so you will be able to see the type of fence you might be interested in.

The morning session will concentrate on portable and semi permanent electric fence systems and their Building Fence applications, including a discussion of intense rotational grazing, a superior method of pasture management. There will also be a discussion of battery and solar energizers, volt meters, gateways, and most importantly, how to educate animals to electric fence. We will finish up with a discussion and tour of low tension semi-permanent fences.

Hands-on building! The afternoon session will focus on the construction of permanent fencing solutions such as Bekaert fixed knot woven wire fence, electric high tensile smooth wire, and Centaur HTP rail systems. There will be a demonstration of the King Hitter Post Pounder and various tools used to facilitate fence construction.  Participants will learn the proper method of mounting and grounding an energizer and how to protect it from lightning.

Representatives from Speedrite, Centaur, King Hitter and Solidlock will be available to answer your questions as well as give demonstrations.

You are welcome to come for either or both sessions. Bring a box lunch if you are coming for the day, or there are two restaurants nearby. Remember to dress warmly as most of the clinic is conducted outdoors. The clinic will be held rain or shine.
