How To Check Deer Health

Deer farmers with herds of deer, and deer hunters, may be worried about Chronic Wasting Disease and other fatal deer diseases; however, there are ways to check deer herd health. Here are a few tips from QDMA:

  • Check weight of deer
  • Jawbone age
  • Doe lactation status
  • Breeding date
  • Kidney fat
  • Antler dimensions

To keep deer healthy and away from external wildlife on deer farms, deer farmers will need to install 7.5 to 8' feet high metal deer fence usually made from woven wire fence material. Any type of fence mesh will do to reduce the number of wild deer from reaching domestic deer on farms.
