Cattle panels for hoop house

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.

you mean screens? Have you checked out Home Depot or Lowes?

Hi Zuni ,

I have the most recent TSC sales flyer and they have what they call corn crib wire on sale . 2"x4" holes and 60"wide by 100 ft roll for 109.99 regularly sells for $169.99. They also have horse fence 48" wide xy 100 ft for 143.99.Doesnt mention size of holes on that one but I believe the first one I mentioned is what you are looking for . Sale ends Thursday October 6th. Not sure where you are located but perhaps if they dont have it in your store they could get it in for you .

Hope this helps

Signet

Thanks folks, but I do mean "cattle panels". These are 8'x16' galvanized panels with large openings that allow you to reach through. TSC offers these in the states but not in Canada. If you want to see a photo, check the post under the the vertical gardening forum: http://forums.gardenweb.com/forums/load/vertical/msg0622582022244.html.
I am planning to bring a couple back from the states at some point...

These panels are used to make a pen on the front of calf hutches. Do you have any farm supply places around or any Co-op stores? Try in some of the smaller towns near you or try to find someone who farms. I know there aren't many farms left in York region so you might have to look further afield.

Ontario TSC stores are now advertising cattle panels on sale for $28!!! Gardener stampede, anyone?
