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.
If you find you have a few extra cattle pen panels laying around your homestead, try re-purposing them to create functional new items for your garden. This greenhouse is Super easy to make and can be done in a day. This would go a lot quicker with 2 people but doable with just one! Check out the tutorial and as always, be sure to let us know if you make one!
