Corn crib fence
Old corn cribs make good fence panels, says Gordon Johnson, Waco, Neb., who makes fencing out of old sections from his Behlen crib.
Johnson got the idea when he stopped harvesting ear corn and combined it instead. He says the crimped sections are made from heavy wire that can stand up to the abuse of cattle. He runs the panels end to end, fastened with lag bolts to the large wooden posts. The top and bottom rods on each panel were heated and bent around the posts.
Johnson has purchased additional crib sections from neighbors and plans to use them around all of his feed lots.
