For farmers and ranchers, fencing is as much about keeping predators out as it is about keeping livestock in. Significantly less expensive than barbed wire, electric fencing is the preferred way to do both tasks efficiently, but there's never been a book dedicated to the topic. And while it's not difficult to install and maintain the electric fencing, people often get the details wrong and then wonder why the fence isn't doing its job. Ann Larkin Hansen brings decades of experience to the art of using electric fencing. In this Storey Basics guide, she explains in everyday terms how it works, the various systems one can build, how to install and maintain the three kinds of electric fence (permanent, combination permanent non-electric and electric wire offset and temporary or portable electric) and what not to do with electric fencing. For livestock raisers, Hansen also covers the basics of rotational grazing.
