When moving electric fences, I came up with a way to “tame” the wires for easy removal and restringing: Wrap the wire in a figure eight on a plastic clothes hanger. Hold the hook part in one hand and wrap (or unwrap) with the other. When finish­ing up, wind the end around the hook of the hanger. This system will help with rotational pasturing practices and waste less wire.
