FULTON, Mo. –University of Missouri Extension offers a program on Missouri fence laws at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 16 at the MU Extension Center in Callaway County, 5803 County Road 302, Fulton.
“Missouri continues to have a very complicated fence law, in large part due to the fact that two separate laws cover the state depending on the county that your land is in,” says Joe Koenen, MU Extension agricultural business specialist.
“If you own land, you need to know the law and how it impacts you, whether you own livestock or not,” he says. “Another problem is that both laws are subject to interpretation and can be a little different, depending on the county you’re in.”
Koenen compares the laws during the program. He has presented programs on the fence law for more than 25 years throughout the state, in person and via webinar and ITV. Koenen says the program helps landowners understand laws in their counties and what their rights and responsibilities are.
A potluck dinner will be served. Tea and water will be provided.
