Legal Boundary Fence Amendment
- 3-Wire Boundary Fence
- 3-Wire Cattle Boundary Fence
In 1989 and again in 1991, I tried to get the Legislature to amend the Montana "Legal Boundary Fence" law to allow a 3-wire electric fence to be used as a "legal boundary fence". To say the least I failed. It was just too new and too many unknowns for the law makers to grasp. Jump forward to the 2015 session and ranchers came to us to ask for support to amend the law.
To make a long story short the amendment is on the Governor's desk waiting to be signed. I hope you email Governor Bullock and ask him to sign the bill. The law needs to come into the 21st Century. Many thanks to the members of the House and Senate Ag committees who listened and voted to support the amendment. The online form to email Gov.
