Designing pastures for modern deer farming systems


Designing pastures for modern deer farming systems



Proceedings of the New Zealand Society of Animal Production 63: 274-279



Following on from definitive measurements on deer preferences to pasture species by Hunt & Hay in the late 1980's, this paper provides some practical guidelines for how forage programmes can be set up in NZ deer farming systems. These programmes take into account the highly selective nature of NZ red deer, their strong preference for herbs and legumes well ahead of grasses. Three groups of pastures are put forward for use in integrated breeding and finishing deer systems.
