pigs/acre is something that can only be determined by the shepherd(? not sure what the term would be for pigs!).

A deer can jump high, and a deer can jump long, but he can't do both at the same time.
The 'vision barrier' fence can also work...If he can't see the goodies (AND can't see what he is jumping INTO), he probably won't.

I have 200 small trees and shrubs on order for this spring from the Missouri conservation dept. Hopefully it will be a good mixture to keep the deer out eventually. So I could put up the string fence first and then do my planting on the inside of it... I'm getting excited now.
