What Are Some Different Wire Panels?

Different types of welded wire panels for livestock include cattle, hog, utility and rolled fence panels. Additional wire panel types include horse, sheep and goat, combination and Hi-Five mesh panels. The panels can also be used as perimeter fencing around the edges of a residential property.

Typical 50-inch corral and feedlot cattle panels in 6-foot rolls use 4-gauge vertical rods and 5-gauge horizontal rods spaced 4 inches and 6 inches apart. Heavy-duty cattle panels use 2.75-gauge rod. Hog panels are typically 16 feet in length and 32 inches in height, and use 2.75-gauge rod. Economy hog panels use 4-gauge rod and weigh 34 pounds.

Utility panels typically come in 20-foot lengths, have 4-by-4-inch spacing, and use 6-gauge rod with a .192-inch diameter. These panels come in multiple heights, including 3, 4, 5 and 8 feet. Rolled panel fencing comes in 100-foot rolls and uses 6-gauge galvanized rod spaced 6 inches apart.

Horse panels come in 16-by-12-foot and 16-by-5-foot sizes. The panels use 4-gauge rods spaced 2 inches and 4 inches apart. Combination panels use 2.75-gauge rod with various spacing to accommodate different size animals.

Hi-Five wire mesh panels use hot-dipped, galvanized 6-gauge rods with 2-by-4-inch, 4-by 4-inch or 6-by 6-inch spacing. The panels are 16 feet long and 5 feet high.
