New Gallagher solar fence charger

I have been blessed by my neighbors that have just as much acreage as we do but do not have animals to keep the grass and brush down.  They have been kind enough to let us graze our animals on their property.  I did not want to put a permanent fence in so I am installing a temporary one with this battery/solar powered fence charger by the folks down in Australia….. Gallagher.

I have used one inexpensive hand truck from Harbor Freight, two golf cart batteries ( hooked in series for 12v), one B180 gallagher fence charger and One gallagher solar panel.

Do you know where your Turkey and Beef come from and how they were raised ?

When my wife and I were younger we didn’t seem to mind where our food came from, we just wanted something that tasted good and filled our belly.  But as we grew older and wiser and began to have some health concerns we began to perk our ears up when we heard the terms ‘ Organic’, ‘Range Fed’, ‘Grass finished’ and a whole slew of other topics related to how an animal was raised from conception to finishing.  I have attached an article from ‘ Eatwild’ called…  ‘Grass Fed Basics’  Hope you enjoy.
