Permalink Movable & Fixed Fencing for Livestock

August 17, 2017
La Crescent, Minnesota

Harry and Jackie Hoch and their crew use organic and biodynamic practices to produce a variety of fruit and vegetables, along with rotationally grazed hogs, chickens, geese, ducks, and sheep. They are in the midst of a three-year demonstration grant trialing livestock fencing to maintain pastured pigs in their orchards. At this MOSES Organic Field Day, Harry and Hoch orchard staff will share their experiences and some of the data collected for the project. Hugh Kraemer from K Fence will share his knowledge of fence materials and construction. The University of Minnesota Extension will also be on hand to answer questions. This event is intended for anyone who is considering rotational grazing, whether on a small hobby farm or a several-hundred-acre operation.
