Deer farms have three main production systems, all of which can take place on the one property or farms can be built around just one system as a result of topography or resources:
This is a critical time to provide both quality lactation feed for hinds and help maintain pasture composition quality on a broadacre country. Hind body condition at weaning or prior to mating is also an important consideration.
Will often benefit from a legume, with white clovers such as Nomad and Attribute with red clovers such as Relish providing an important pasture quality improvement through the following summer and early autumn
Wintering of both capital stock and finishing stock can be based on several crops or pastures. It's important to note that this is not a time of high appetite and liveweight gain potential is moderate through June and July.
Individual weaners’ appetites increase dramatically through August so this is an important time to supply high volumes of good quality forage. Capturing this opportunity will increase liveweight gain.
*It is important to note that deer can only tolerate AR1 endophyte.
Herbs and legumes
* Legion has been bred, selected and successfully tested as a perennial and will function as a perennial ryegrass. Due to a small number of tip awns Legion is certified as Lolium Boucheanum.
