This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in Animal Care.

For this BB, you will set up a movable electric fence for paddock shift systems (show a move)!



For this BB, the point values are as follows:
     - Using 110v ac power - 1 point
     - Using a solar fence energizer - 1 point
     - Using car battery (kept dry) - 1.5 points

To document your completion, provide proof of the following as pics or video (less than two minutes):
     -picture of your energizer system
     - animals in old paddock
     - place where paddock fence will be setup
     - setting up the movable fence
     - fence in a new location
     - animals in new paddock
