About Me

Hi I'm Colt Larsen from Butte, Wyoming. My family has been in the farming business stretching back to the early 1900's. Nowadays I still see a lot of farmers who don't properly fence in their cattle and pigs and these animals will eventually break these structures apart. On the other hand, feedlot panels like the ones you'll see on my site are a lot more animal-friendly. That's because the metal we use is completely unbreakable. Have a look around my site and feel free to drop me a line anytime.

How to Build a Fence with Hog Panels

Hog panels are a very useful type of fencing that can be used for a variety of different purposes. Hog panels are panels made out of thick galvanized steel, they are quite simple and easy to install and extremely durable. You can bend a hog panel to fit any shape of fence that you want. Hog panels are not only ideal for containing pigs but they also make a strong fence for cattle. You can also use them for horses without the risk of them getting hurt with barbed wire. Hog panels are available in 4 and 6 ft sections and unlike field wire, it does not have to be unrolled.

Hog panels have a variety of applications. They are used to construct hog traps, hog pens along with other structures that have no relation whatsoever to hogs. A normal hog panel is about four feet tall and can be found at a local farm or livestock equipment store. Some people use other materials to make hog panels, such as free discarded wooden pallets. It is also possible to use galvanized steel wire of the same size to make a hog panel by soldering them together, but this is not a recommended method for those who are looking for a cost-effective way to build a hog panel fence.

In order to construct a fence with hog panels, firstly, you need to mark the proposed fence line with the help of ground stakes. Insert a stake in the ground at a distance of about 8 feet from each other along the proposed fence line. These stakes will indicate the placement of your steel posts. Using the post driver, install the steel post no less than one foot into the ground at every stake. You should ensure that the fence clip notch on the post faces outward, away from the inside of the pen or enclosure.

Align the hog panels with the steel posts and make sure that the hog panels rest against the smooth side of the steel post. One end of the first panel should be touching the first steel post in that row. The end of the panel will come into contact with the third post, allowing the second post to meet the panel right in the center. Start in the middle of the panel at the second post and affix the panel to the post with the help of panel clips. Once that has been done, secure the ends of the panels by repeating the process with the other two posts

Repeat the same process with the other hog panels until you get to the desired length of the fence line. Tighten any corners that you may have by fastening them using fencing wire.
