The Virginia Forage and Grassland Council, in conjunction with Virginia Cooperative Extension, will again hold four Fencing Schools across Virginia this spring. These schools, taught by industry professionals, are equally beneficial to novice and experienced fence builders. During the schools, participants will learn about different fence types (electric and non-electric) and materials, proper brace and fence construction, the basics of electric fencing and electric fence trouble-shooting. The schools are limited to 30 participants and fill up quickly so sign up if you are interested in attending.
