Default Feeder Panels for Cattle

I have had issues with hogs in the past and have used the 4' hog panels and cut small sections down to allow access for fawns.

Recently having issues with cows and them jumping over the 4' hog panels. That or they are leaning over the panels to the point where they get bent over enough for them to step over.

What is everyone using to keep cows out and still allow access for deer/fawns?

Run a strand of Barb wire along the top of the pen.

Barbed wire will fix the problem

Barbed wire top strand can also catch the legs of a deer!

We ran a line of electric fence wire right near the top. The deer didn't seem to care but the cattle left the pen alone.
