When we think of the devastation from the historic Okanogan County fires of recent years, it is easy to overlook a critical aspect of an agriculturally-heavy area. The folks that own and manage the land suffered the loss of miles and miles of fencing, which is critical to their livelihoods. If you are a cattle rancher, fencing is absolutely necessary to keep cattle on their own rangeland and for their own protection.
Much of the fencing has been replaced, but there is still a need for help! If you have had experience running fence lines of 3 to 5 strand barbed wired cattle fencing; wood corner posts; wood H braces for tensioners with metal posts – you are especially needed and your help would be appreciated.
Please consider helping with this for a couple of days or longer. For additional information and questions, please contact Rosalee Mohney at firstname.lastname@example.org.
