Hog Wire Fence Panels Home Depot – Although farmers and ranchers often use them for pigs, pigs panels provide equally effective fencing for a variety of other animals, including dogs, sheep, and cattle. A pig panel only measures 16 feet long by 34 inches high and is made of galvanized steel rods of a vertical and horizontal intersection. Installing a pig panel fence requires some patience as each panel weighs more than 30 pounds and can be quite difficult to handle. Try to have a helpful helper when you are ready to place the pig panels to make the installation process go a little more smoothly.
Clear your fence line. Put on work gloves and remove all the stones and excess vegetation along the route of the fence. Trim the grass along the fence line to a height of three inches or less. Mark the locations of the corner posts with a can of spray paint, putting them in 16-foot increments so you will not have to cut the panels in half. Drive T-posts at each corner post location with a vial next to the handheld. Sink them to a depth of 12 to 18 inches.
Run a chain between the corner posts to mark the perimeter of the pig panel fence. Pound T-posts along the outer edge of the marking chain to serve as line poles for your pig panel fence. Attach the middle part of the panel and the other end of the screen to the first two line poles with additional wire fence lengths. Repeat this process for all fence panels, except for the door panel.
