This program is intended for the exclusion of livestock from waterways and dugouts. It does NOT cover perimeter fencing.
The SRRCD covers 75% of the cost of materials and installation for a two strand electric fence with 40 ft. post spacing. This is equivalent to $1 per linear foot for fencing plus $70.00 per corner and $150.00 per Solar Electric Fencer (material and labour included). Maximum SRRCD contributions per project are $1,000.00 per dugout and $4,000.00 per riparian area.
Producers may choose to install a fence of different specifications (e.g., barbed wire, closer post spacing etc.) however, this will be done at their expense. Some exceptions may be made for specialty circumstances or livestock. Contact SRRCD staff to find out more.
