Cattle guard wings are another useful feature. They prevent your cattle from jumping the corner of the guard. Wings are used with barbed wire fences. If you already have a full height fence along the width of the guard, that will work effectively, but it cannot be just a flimsy 3 strand barbed wire. You need to have a fairly substantial fence. Although cattle are not all that smart, they can cut the distance in half and hop 3 feet. Having fencing along the entire width of the cattle guard prevents this. If your fence is barbed wire, the wings are your best and safest option.
All cattle guard wings are made from 4.5” .188 wall pipe.
No hardware included on the bolt on wings
