Small Farm and Garden Forum discusses electric fences and mob grazing

Penn Valley resident and Nancy Henderson will share her long time experience with electric fencing, how to set up electric fencing and how affordable electric fencing is at the Small Farm and Garden Forum at 7 tonight at the Rough and Ready Grange. There will be hands on demonstrations and fencing displays, as well as questions/answers and problem-solving. In addition, Brad Fowler, owner of The Goat Works and a longtime user of electric fencing, will discuss the benefits of successful mob grazing, and why electric fencing makes it work for healthier pastures as well as predator and blackberry elimination.

Electric fencing is easy to move, allowing mob or rotational grazing, which promotes healthy soil, lush pastures and leads to healthy livestock, as well as predator and blackberry control.

For questions on the Forum, call Ann Driver at 530-432-8977 or Cathe’ Fish at 530-432-5109. The Rough and Ready Grange is located at 14550 Rough and Ready Highway in Rough and Ready. For more information, visit
