Here are a few posts on fencing to help get you started:
Do you need to move cattle panels? Just hoop it up!
How to transport 16' cattle panels. There are a couple ways to get 16 foot cattle panels home - you can either cut them or hoop 'em up.
How to put up fence even if you don't know what you are doing. Think you need to be an expert to get your fencing up? Nope. You just need some tools and some patience.
How to put up electric fence even if you don't know what you are doing. Holding off on electric fence because you think it's too hard or because you are afraid of it? Don't be! Just get out there and get 'er done. Electric fence will be your new best friend.
Fencing for pigs. Everything you need to know about setting up fencing for pigs. If you are new to pigz you may think you have good enough fence. You don't - make sure you double down on your pig fencing efforts or you may find yourself running thru the woods chasing escaped pigz.
Happy Wednesday everyone! Do you have your fencing tools? Are you ready for action?
We "hoop" our cattle panels, but we also use a ratcheting strap.
We do this so that the panel maintains the hoop regardless of opening tailgate, etc. We also make the hoop side to side, instead of back to front. no pressure on tailgate. It was easier to take them out.
Thanks, Anon, great idea!
Wish they sold cattle panels here...could think of loads of things we could use them for because they look so robust.
what do they have instead, Vera? just woven wire or "field" fence?? and yes - you can use it for everything. i just cut one up and used it to make a small pen for the meat chickens.
Panels are the best for so many things! That's how we haul them as well, unless our project requires smaller lengths and then we aren't afraid to take the bolt cutters to them! And yes, yes, electric fence is our best friend, from keeping the goats and pigs in, to keeping the predators (and curious dogs) out of the quail, to keeping our dogs safe because we live on the highway!
