CLEMSON, S.C. — Any farmer can tell you, not all fences are created equal. To even the odds, the Clemson University Extension Service is offering an in-person workshop on Fence Design and Construction.
“There are some things best learned with hands-on instruction and that includes fence construction and maintenance,” said Chris LeMaster, a Clemson livestock and forages agent for Cherokee and York counties who is hosting the workshop.
Workshop participants will learn proper fence planning and construction techniques in a mix of classroom instruction and hands-on demonstration, LeMaster said. The class will also give an overview of fencing materials and proper maintenance.
The workshop is free and will be held Friday, Oct. 29 from 10:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on the Davidson farm in York, S.C.
An RSVP is required. Participants may register by emailing Amy Mallet, firstname.lastname@example.org.

In addition to Clemson Extension, the workshop is sponsored by AgSouth Farm Credit; Farm Bureau of York County; All Stock Fencing, LLC; and Stay-Tuff Fence Mfg., Inc.
