What are Cattle Panels, Livestock Panels, Goat Panels, Feedlot Panels, Hog Panels?
Livestock panels, for anyone that doesn't know are pieces of fencing that are movable. They come in 16' sections and various heights and are commonly called cattle panels. They are also called feedlot panels. They can be fairly inexpensive or very expensive depending on which one you use.
The most commonly used one is the one pictured above, the cattle or feedlot panel.
16' x 52" The holes in it are 6" x 6" except for the very bottom which has an extra piece of wire going through it. Tractor Supply sells these for $21.99 now.
Combo panels are 16' x 52" and have graduated holes like the hog panels but are tall like a cattle panel. These are $39.99
Goat and/or Sheep panels are 16' x 48" high and the holes are 4" x 4". Goats, especially with horns couldn't get their heads caught as easily if at all in these. Baby goats of standard goat breeds can't fit through the holes either although I have a Nigerian Dwarf kids go through them when very young. These run $54.99
Horse Panels are available as well. They are 16' x 5' and are $85. Pricey.
Tip - The closer the wire the heavier these will be. Not a good thing if you plan on moving them much. There is a considerable weight difference in cattle panels and goat panels.
Well, I had to see how it held ou the first winter. I created a design based on your photo witrh the supports. I added side and end boards, used 2 2x6" 12' per side board. added 3 fence cattle panels used another 2x6" to hold the panels in place. Used 3 2x4" landscape timber 3 high to make the ends, then added sections of fence cut to form the ends. To prevent damage from the sharp cut ends of the fence I added a layer of old plastic mesh feed bags taped around the edges before I installed the end panels.ReplyDelete
I use the hog panels with 4x4 squares, still 4 x 16. I'm using them as lattice inserted into wood and galvanized tin fencing. When I lived in San Antonio, Gardenwille used to sell tomato cages very similar to yours, except the edge squares were cut in half and rounded into a circle and each panels circles were brought together with a 18 guage wire going down the center of the side circles to hold together.cattle panels I bought for of them and have had them for years and are still in great shape. They fold into one piece for storage.ReplyDelete
