Program on Missouri fence laws set at locations throughout the state

Fence on Farm

University of Missouri Extension specialists will explain Missouri’s complicated fence laws 6:30-8:30 p.m. Wednesday, February 12, at locations throughout the state.

“Missouri continues to have a complicated fence law,” says Joe Koenen, MU Extension agricultural business specialist. “Two separate laws cover the state, and they vary county to county. Both laws are subject to interpretation.”

Koenen has given presentations on fence law throughout the state for more than 25 years. “If you own land, you need to know the law and how it impacts you whether you own livestock or not,” he says.

MU Extension offers the program via the Zoom video conferencing system. Meeting locations:
