    Lots and lots of places, just google cattle panels. You can also buy more flexible, strong flexible plastic-coated rolls of wide-holed mesh from places such as Wilko and B&Q, which is easier to work with.

    Sorry not sure what you mean?
    It might be galvanized stock fencing you are looking for, if it comes on a roll. Try that in a search. It is called sheep fencing sometimes too.
    Some farm supply shops, or buying online possibly.
    Hope that helps a bit.
    Edit it comes in different thicknesses too example .  11 gauge. 13 gauge.
    I think the higher number actually means thinner (confusingly enough).

    I'm not familiar with cattle panels but are you looking at something similar to weldmesh? We've used this for various applications in our garden.

    Think Cattle Panels is a US term ... look for livestock fencing

    As I said in my reply earlier, just google cattle panels, the term is used in the UK and is interchangeable with stock fencing. If you want to exclude US retailers just add 'UK' to your search terms.

    As Singing Gardener pointed out, weldmesh is often used for gardening/horticultural purposes and is also worth searching. This is the type of material I described in my earlier post and can be galvanised, coated etc.

    As a member of a farming family and former smallholder I've never come across the term Cattle Panels in the UK ... (perhaps it's another of those imports we've had a thread about recently ;) ) but you'll find what you need under ' galvanised weld mesh panels' and similar terms

    This place appears to have a good deal on at the moment https://www.sure-green.com/products/welded-wire-mesh/welded-wire-mesh-panels.php?product=416&utm_source=adrac&utm_medium=shopping&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI37qqnIfW3QIVy7HtCh1-dwuTEAQYASABEgI0oPD_BwE

    You're right Dove, it is an imported word, but my point was that if you just google the term it brings up UK retailers for it and weldmesh products, and if you add 'uk' it will exclude US retailers.
    My posts were intended to demonstrate that a basic internet search would have helped the OP and saved him or her asking the question on this forum.

    Have a look too in builders' merchants for the rusty metal grids they sell for reinforcing concrete.  It comes in bigger gauge than that stock fencing so is, in my experience, very good for clematis and rose supports and I've also used it for supporting pumpkins, squashes and cane fruits such as blackberries and tayberries.   If you buy the 5 metre long panel you can easily bend that over to make an arch.

    Can you give me a link please as I've been looking for days and can't find anywhere that sells anything like cattle panel?
