Also look into the rolls of welded rebar like you would pour in concrete sidewalk. You can get rolls 6' x 150' then. It whatever size you need for how big a ring you want.
I built one last year with the concrete wire. It was too flimsy. But, it had been rusting out in the wheather for about 25 yrs according to the ranch owner. Do they make different sizes in that? It is a lot cheaper than cattle panel per foot. I remember saying , next time I will use cattle panel(much stouter). I covered it with burlap and just carried it around in the back of my little Toyota and set it here and there. It was pretty cool until the wind kicked up. Make sure you have a good way to tie it down.
Edit: If I would have drove t-posts in the ground and then wrapped it with the concrete wire it probably would have been fine. I was just holding mine down with big rocks(as to be mobile) and it was no bueno in the wind.
