Eco-friendly, USA Made Livestock Panel Connectors Developed by NC Man
Phillip Morrow, of North Carolina, spent years developing a livestock panel connector that is changing the way homesteaders, farmers, and ranchers install cattle panels.
Morrow grew up raising various livestock. He and his father always used livestock panels and hooks to set up their fence panels. One day, while using the hooks to connect a livestock panel to a post, Morrow's father had one break so badly in his hand while trying to put it on that the force sent him tumbling down a hill. It was then that Morrow's father sent him looking for an easier way to connect livestock panels to fence posts.
After doing some searching for panel connectors, Morrow couldn't find anything at the time that looked any easier or just as secure than using hooks. He gave up on the search. A few weeks passed and Morrow's father, who had assumed Morrow found a better product than hooks, asked when the new connectors would arrive. Morrow broke the news to his father that he hadn't found anything and nothing would be arriving. In that moment, Morrow's father challenged him to create a product that would help them and others like them who depend on livestock panels for fencing.
It took three years of designing and testing before Morrow landed on the product he now sells. It's been modified some, but the goal of producing a sturdy livestock fence panel connector has remained the same.
How OMF Panel Connectors Simplify Installing Cattle Panels
Often people will use hooks, twine, or zip ties to secure livestock panels to fence posts. Morrow's panel connector design makes it so that only two connectors are needed per post. This reduces the number of connections that need to be made, especially if someone is using as many as 12 zip ties per post.
When panels are used as a temporary set up, it's important that both set up and break down be efficient and quick. So, it became important to Morrow to find a design that would make this process simpler than struggling with hooks, tying twine, or cutting zip ties. Morrow's connector design is created so that people screw the connector and panel to the post. When unscrewing, the connector often actually stays on the post. This makes moving and setting up the fence in a new location quick and easy. It also reduces mess and waste from cut zip ties and twine left to fall to the ground.
