great for keeping the livestock from standing on
pens, and for keeping them from climbing on pens. A heavy duty
horizontal bar can also be added to hang feeders on. These would be the
choice for pigs as well to help prevent them from lifting up on the
panels. 16 gauge and 14 gauge strengths are available ...
we don't recommend anything lighter than 16 gauge for hogs.
are also an attractive option making them popular
for fairs. They are great from a feeding standpoint as the hookover
feeders can be hung on the bars. This style of pen was made for the
with 4"X4" wire openings or panels with 2"x4" wire openings:
have been popular for sheep and goats. These also are great for hanging
feeders on and the 2"X4" wire openings are more difficult for the
livestock to climb on as well as the children. The 2"X4" wire panels are
a heavier panel though and aren't as common for fairs as some feel that
added strength isn't as necessary for fair use.
Mixing panel styles
- some fairs use a vertical front and the wire
panel sides and backs.
Vertical and horizontal panels typically come in two heights for fairs:
tall to the top of the panel.
4 foot tall
at the top of the panel.
Taller sizes available for the vertical and horizontal bars.
Wire panels come in
and 50" heights, or even 5' and 6'.
36", 4', 5', 6', 7', 8' and 10'
Bowgates and back panels:
These can range in size from 36"
to 4', 5', 6' etc. wide. Some fairs purchase 4' bowgates instead of a
5' bowgate and then if they would like a larger pen ... they add the
length to the side. Benefits for this include being able to fit more 4’
pens than 5’ pens in a show barn. For example, down the length of a
100’ barn, 25 of the 4’ wide show pens can fit versus just 20 of the 5’
wide show pens.
These can be built in many different lengths, more
typically 5', 6', 7' and 8'.
These pens can come
with 3 different types of latch styles.
* Chain Latch
* Vertical Slider Latch
* Horizontal Slider/Bolt Latch
popular latch has been the vertical slider latch.
