This page offers some useful items used by British Moorlands Ltd on our own moors but not normally available through the usual suppliers.

HIGH PERFORMANCE   GROUSE GRIT  –  medicated or plain granite quartz  . This contains a range of trace minerals which can often be deficient in vegetation on moorland soils, specially if acidic.  If farm livestock, on or near your moor,  are benefiting from mineral supplements you too can try this for better egg production and stronger chicks.  Selenium can increase resistance to diseases which are not covered by regular medicated grit.         Please enquire about specification and cost.

GRIT  CONTAINERS +  WATER  PAN     Grit placed on bare ground or divot is favourite for grouse.  Where medicated and plain grit are used, the grit is kept in place by the 12 litre water pan which is moved to cover either the plain or the medicated grit. Having grit and water together reduces grouse travel, energy use and predation. The pan has a metal cover to catch rain and dew and to reduce evaporation.  It is locked onto 2 anchor pegs and, if required can have a guard to prevent sheep from drinking the water.  Please enquire for details and cost.

GRIT  MARKERS         Flexible  posts c. 5 ft long, swing back upright when knocked by animals.    Please enquire for costs.
