DEER CRUSH & HANDLING FACILITIES
The quiet handling of red deer is crucial to their health & well-being as well as productivity and so top quality facilities are required to achieve this. These facilities need to adaptable for all facets of the deer farming enterprise such as the velveting of stags, drenching, vaccinating & weighing all age groups from fawns through to adult deer and general handling for the day to day stock management.
Also incorporated into the same facilities at Deer Genetics NZ are:
- The sales complex, for the annual Elite Stag Sale.
- The quarantine centre for semen collection for export & exporting of live deer.
- AI & Embryo Transfer facilities.
Please view the videos below to see these facilities in action showing entry of animals to facility (video 1 & 2); movement of the deer within the facilities including drafting (video 3 & 4) and use of deer crush for AI purposes (video 5).
