New Publication Provides Overview of Maryland’s Fencing Laws
There is an old adage on good fences and neighbors. This is especially true in agriculture. A good fence can keep livestock in the pasture, can keep livestock off your property, or can act as a barrier to potentially detour trespassers/unwanted visitors. But what exactly is the fencing laws in Maryland?
