Cattle panels for hoop house

zuni(5a)September 23, 2011

Does anyone know where I can buy cattle panels in Ontario to make a trellis/hoop house? There are some great designs out there, but the cattle panels are only available in the states... the Ontario TSC stores do not carry them. I live in York Region.

I looked all over this spring. I was told that there is a Menonite fella near St.Jacobs who sells them - but he makes them on demand and they are $$$. I called every fence/hardware place that I could find - no luck... I ended up buying concrete reinforcing wire from Home Depot (4'x10' panels). This was the closest that I could find. You could join a couple together to get more height for the hoop house... sorry I can't be of more help!

Thanks, Glynis. The concrete reinforcing wire is what I am using now. The problem is the unfinished ends of all the wires... I finally put electrical wiring caps on them just to protect my skin and eyes. The other problem is that they rust... keep your tetanus shots up to date!

Isn't it frustrating that something so simple is so hard to find in Ontario?
