FAQs

How tall does a cattle panel need to be?

If you are intending to use it to fence in cows the height should be at least 90cm to stop the cow from getting its head over the top.  If you are using it for another farm or wild animal please refer to the guide above or see Animal and Pet Fencing.

How do you install it?

Please refer to the diagrams above.  

It is possible to install cattle panels with different methods and post types.  The installation instructions we have provided outline the most common method for both metal T Posts as well as wooden posts.

Whilst wooden posts are still the most commonly used T posts tend last longer.  They also offer a similar level of strength and stability for middle/intermediate posts as well as being lighter, easier to handle, and longer-lasting.  

Wooden posts with struts are still used to construct corner posts to ensure a greater level of stability.

How do I attach to a wooden post?

The easiest and most common method is to hammer a U staple around welded wire mesh squares into the wooden post (view image)

Can I use cattle panels as a trellis to grow fruit and veg?

Yes, the mesh is often used to grow fruit and veg either as a flat trellis attached to a wall or an arch.  For a bigger selection, also see Wire Panels and Welded Wire Mesh categories.
