How long does my grid need to be? -
This all depends on what animals you are dealing with. For compliance with BS4008:2006, 2.6m is the advised minimum for cattle and sheep which ours are as standard. However, they also state that “it is not claimed that grids shorter than this will necessarily be unsuccessful” meaning if you have an old-style shorter grid that has not failed then we would of course accommodate your needs.
It also recommends a minimum of 4m when dealing with deer, but we only recommend this for small deer such as Muntjac. For any medium to large types, such as red deer, we always advise our standard deer grids which are 4.6m long.
