Beginning at 8 years old, Steve Buffaloe has been working on and influencing the development of electric fencing. As a youngster, he was paid 25¢ per hour to string electrical fencing in the hills of Tennessee.
Now, he has collected over 30 years of industry experience. He was on the original team that developed the safety specifications for electric fence chargers for UL listings (Underwriters Laboratories), and has also been the Go-To-Answer-Guy for over 20 years for all major farm and agricultural retail accounts.
He will not admit that he knows everything there is to know about electric fencing — just more than everyone else. At 6’7”, his presence is as great as his catch phrases, such as “you can’t jump an electric fence with a truck.”
Steve is married and the father of 3 wonderful children.
John spent the first 16 years of his life on a family operated dairy farm in Wisconsin. He has worked as a store manager and also as a fencing and agricultural products buyer for large farm stores for 12 years. John was also a Product Development Manager and Sales Manager for agricultural product companies.
He has spent the last 20 years working for Zareba® Systems and is extremely knowledgeable about all things related to electric fencing. There is not a question about Zareba® products that John can’t answer!
