Make cattle panel fencing by attaching panels to a post at each end. Continue adding more posts and panels to enclose the area. The time necessary to complete the project depends on the length of the fence. In addition to the fence materials, you need gloves to wear while assembling the fence.Continue Reading
The materials are sharp. Protect your hands with gloves when working with fencing.
Choose either wooden posts or metal T-posts. Install posts to center them at the end of each panel. The heavy wire of these panels only requires one post at each end, which means that they go up quickly. If using wooden posts, set them in concrete, and then allow at least 24 hours for the concrete to cure before attaching the panels.
Beginning at one end of the panel, use the appropriate fastener to attach the panel to the post. Use fencing staples for wooden posts or T-post connectors for metal posts. Leave approximately 2 inches of clearance at the bottom of the panel to prevent grass accumulation that leads to deterioration of the bottom wire. Then, attach the second end of the panel.
Continue adding posts and panels to complete the project. Add gates where necessary to allow access into the enclosure.
