Programs on Fencing Law Set

COLUMBIA, Mo. – University of Missouri Extension will offer a one-night program on Missouri’s fence laws 6:30-9 p.m. on Jan. 23 and Feb. 13 at locations throughout the state.

“This is one of MU Extension’s most popular programs,” said Joe Koenen, MU Extension agriculture business specialist. Koenen has presented programs on Missouri fencing law for more than 25 years.

Koenen and other extension specialists will offer insight into fence maintenance for row crop, livestock and small-acreage owners. The program helps landowners and renters understand their legal and financial responsibilities. Koenen will give updates on a Missouri fence law that went into effect in 2016.

Missouri’s fencing laws are complex, Koenen says. The state has a general fence law and 19 counties have a local fence law. “It is important for property owners and renters to understand the unique standards of each,” he says.

Extension specialists are present at each of the program sites. Attendees can ask questions or make comments from each location through Skype or Zoom.

Contact Koenen at or 660-947-2705 for more information. There is a fee for the program and materials.

Dates and locations:

Tuesday, Jan. 23

Tuesday, Feb. 13
