Cowboy Math – Figuring a Round Pen Now, we know that most of you probably got this all fi gured out. But for those who don’t, here’s the equation to fi gure out how many feet of panel and gate you need to make your ideal round pen. Diameter x Pi (3.14) = Circumference (Editor: …the ‘what’ now?) So, if it’s a 50 foot round pen you want, you’d need to multiply 50 by 3.14 to get how many feet of panel and gate you need. 50 x 3.14 = 157 You need 157 feet of panel and gate to build a 50 foot round pen. Now subtract the number of gate feet you’ve got, divide by your panel length, and you’ve got the number of panels you need to get set up. It’s JUST that simple! all-purpose panels and can be used for cattle or horses. With the 1600 Tube Panels you’ve got the choice between straight or loop legs and fi ve different panel lengths. www.powderriver.com Behlen Country Behlen Country offers two popular options for round pens.
