  • How do you train livestock to electric fence? The best way to train livestock to electric fence is to set it up in the interior of a hard fenced paddock and let them learn to respect the electric fence within the hard fence perimeter. This prevents your electric fence from being damaged and your animals from escaping and being hurt.
    In this video we demonstrate the best way to train livestock to electric fencing.

    Hubby bought me that hose but shorter last year. I LOVE it so far! Did you guys go to the D.C. yet? Was hoping to see you guys in Johnstown again.

    I don't think I've ever seen someone use teflon tape on a hose connection before...

    The tubing thing is a great trick!

    In Australia, I recently purchased the same multi-grip pliers (light blue handle) you demonstrated. It was made in the USA. I had the choice between a slightly more expensive one, made in Germany, or the US one. But I figured, for the few times I'm going to need it, the US made one will be more than adequate. When it's made in China, that's when the quality starts to get a bit more dicey.

    Look at how much feed a Share Cropper could make for you.
    Sandi made this much on Forty Acres

    Living in NM with "goat head" weeds that typically punctures everything... I have that hose and it has held up amazing! 1.5yrs already!

    Hey Austin. Congrats on the new addition again. Got a suggestion...be sure to use plastic straps on holding the insulation tubing. With the weather and what not it will deteriorate fairly quickly. Causing more grounding issues. Trust me I know about them I work in the utility field. Also I wanted to mention I am moving to your old stomping grounds in CT. #Askhomestady I was wondering if you know some good people in the southbury area that is selling ....you guessed it goats. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    So I would love to know how goat heads stand up to the hose. We had a pocket hose last year that worked great for ease of storing during winter but the goat heads poked holes and made little ice rinks from the links.

      Eventually yes, because they are both pregnant. I dunno when, can't remember when they're due, sorry.

    #askhomesteady Aust I haven't used the new hose that you have but have heard raving reviews for it. Can't wait for your opinion. Glad to see K and the new baby enjoying the 🌞. Your older boy is growing fast and looks like he will grow again before summer is over. Have a blessed day!
