Upcoming Workshops

Fencing Options for Sheep & Goats
July 17, 2019, 1-4 p.m.
There are many options to choose from when selecting a fence for your sheep and/or goats. In this workshop, participants will learn how to choose the appropriate fence for their unique situation, as well as what to expect for maintenance down the road. We will tour existing fences on Wellscroft Farm and discuss what we’ve learned over the last 40+ years that may help shape your future fencing and livestock decisions.

 

Poultry Fencing 101
August 14, 2019, 1-4 p.m.
As the interest in backyard poultry continues to grow, hungry predators are finding more and more locations for “drive-thru” meals. Don’t tempt them! This workshop will cover all aspects of electric poultry netting systems including: installation, proper grounding, maintenance, baiting for predators, and how to train your fowl to keep them safe. We'll also briefly discuss permanent fence types and ways to protect your poultry from aerial predators.

 

Extended Grazing for Sheep & Goats
October 9, 2019, 1-4 p.m.
More and more farmers are realizing the benefits of grazing their livestock well beyond the traditional timeline by using portable electric netting. This workshop will teach the basics of electric fence and how you can use it to save on feed costs by extending the grazing season until snow falls. Participants will get hands-on experience by moving one of Wellscroft’s flocks – there’s no better way to learn than getting your boots dirty! Don’t worry - our border collies will be standing by in case things go south.

 

Winterizing Your Fence & Energizer
November 13, 2019, 1-4 p.m.
When the days begin to get shorter and colder, out comes that “winter checklist.” Readying your fence for winter is as important as monitoring it during the summer. We’ll teach participants how to properly store their electric netting and energizer, and tips for winterizing permanent fencing including switching to a pos/neg system. We’ll also cover end-of-season techniques and preparation required to dust off, prepare, and re-energize your equipment for springtime use.
