Fencing and the Texas laws that go along with it will be the topic presented by Tiffany Lashmet, J.D., AgriLife Extension agriculture law specialist, Amarillo.

The cost is $35 and advance registration is required at https://tx.ag/FenceLaw22. Upon completion of registration and credit card payment, participants will receive an email with two attachments — a receipt and a registration confirmation. At the end of the registration confirmation are instructions on how to access the webinar.

Fence laws

Lashmet said the course is important because fence laws are everchanging and it is important for landowners and producers to be aware of potential responsibilities and liabilities.

“Texas fence law is an area of much importance and inaccurate information,” Lashmet said. “This webinar will offer an update on any recent changes to the Texas fence law, an overview of Texas fence law, and highlight how the law applies to common issues such as livestock versus auto collisions on the roadway, estray livestock, neighbor fencing disputes and more.”

Morgan Treadwell, Ph.D., AgriLife Extension rangeland specialist and series co-creator, San Angelo, said Lashmet’s talk is one every Texas landowner can benefit from.

“Tiffany Lashmet is an award-winning presenter and author, and we’re so excited to be able to bring her expertise to our program as we kick off the 2022 stewardship series,” Treadwell said.

Lashmet is the host of the popular podcast “Ag Law in the Field” and author of the blog “Texas Agriculture Law Blog.” She also conducts the Ranchers Leasing Workshop, which can be found online.
