On our 280 ha large farm, there are excellent
conditions for breeding. The farm is located far away from loud
streets and stray dogs.
On the fenced and divided into twelve quarters area, on
the 120 ha large pasture (in one piece) live approximately
2000 fallow deer. 1000 does
and 100 bulls and 500 deers make
the breeding herd of fallow deer. It is divided into 4 groups, each
of which has 3 equipped quarters.
Adult does live in the quarters along with the calves and
one-year-old offspring. The herd is lead by an older doe.
The bulls, on the other hand, get together in smaller groups. Any
such group is led by a leader.
The rut begins in October and lasts until mid-December.
During this time the bulls seem to be very dangerous and lose appetite.
The calves come to the world from mid-June to mid-July. These are
mostly single calves, weigh 3-6 kg and suckle until the winter.
Our herd is of a very high quality, because the
breeding material comes from the best European farms. In addition,
having many lines allowed mixing animals with each other. This helped
to achieve excellent parameters. And ... our animals are of the
best fertile age; not exceeding 5 years, where the maximum age for
a deer is 18-20 years. The weight of a mature bull is 70-130 kg;
a doe reaches sexual maturity at the age of 16 months, weighing
45-55 kg. Noteworthy is the fact that our fallow deer are tamed
and acquire a certain character, which significantly minimizes the
losses during vet treatments and caused by selling animals (1-2
adult animals and 2-3 calves per year).
The animals and products from our farm have eco-certificates,
which guarantee the preservation of natural genetics and health
of the animals. It is also noteworthy that feeding with artificial
feed significantly reduces the immunity of animals and means the
need for intensive veterinary care.
Our breeding is carried out according to the highest
standards. We cared for appropriately equipped summer and winter
quarters, constant veterinary care, organic food (vegetables, grain,
and hay - from our own fields), deer-licks and permanent access
to water and hay.
The ever-growing demand for wildlife from the farm allowed
us to believe that our fallow deer breeding promises a very lucrative
agribusiness. And that's the point...
