How to Build Cattle Panel Gardening Greenhouse

Livestock panels are a heavy-gauge, galvanized, welded wire mesh product. They are also known as “hog”, “cattle” or “sheep” panels. They make a great alternative to a low cost, building material for greenhouses, shelters, Arbors and Veggie tents or trellis, in addition to their regular use of temporary fencing and/or a framed fencing panel. They can also be used to build portable chicken and rabbit tractors, or a low-cost shelter for animals. Their rigidness and ability to take abuse make them ideal for goats, pigs and other animals that have a tendency to stand on or lean against your fencing. For all of these reasons, they are almost a must-have on any new farm or homestead.
