Today the subject of cattle panels (fencing) came up on one of my goat forums. Most everyone that uses them is a fan of them. I mentioned that I use them for gates and thought I'd pass this along to anyone who has never used them this way. I don't really like building gates or buying them. They're expensive. A cheap answer to building or buying gates is to use a cattle panel. First I cut them to the length I need by using my grinder with the cutting wheel. This goes very quickly. It takes longer to put the cutting wheel on my grinder than it does to cut the panel. Next I nail the gate to a wooden post or barn using those horseshoe shaped nails I use for nailing fencing to wooden posts. Don't nail them in all the way so the gate swings freely.
