Run a stand of gotcha barbed wire around the top to ensure the cows get a poke when they lean on the fence. Add a few more t-post and that should do the trick. We find that when we build the feeder pens on the large side, enough distance from the actual feeder the cows tend to leave it alone. Barbed wire , single strand will add extra measure of security when they lean on panels. I know some are concerned with catching a deer in the barbed wire, but typically it takes two to three strands close together, like a goat fence to act as a snare. Probably too much info, but hope things work out.

One or two strands of sharp barbed wire along the top of the panels.
