Cervid: Red deer
Introducing myself...starting out with red deer

Hello,

Iím in the early planning and implementation stages of a red deer farm in the northwest. Just in the land prep, paddock design, and fencing install phase, and am starting to put out feelers for my initial herd stock. If anyone knows anyone that is selling red deer hinds next spring (2019) or that would want to help me set up my small herd (5-10 animals) that would be extraordinarily helpful. Iím lost on the actual timing and transport process, so info/advice would help too.

Weíre on 20 acres of riverfront in the mountains, and our farm is off grid, so energy is always used creatively.

Iím happy to break into the field in a small scale, and look forward to making the industry proud as a woman/Army veteran owned business.

Thanks for reading!
Amanda

I have a guy in mind that deals in Red deer. I will ask him if it is ok to give you his number.

Cervid: Red deer
So far I’m not having much luck at finding a healthy way to buy and transport the deer so far north. I may end up adapting the plan to elk instead, as there are already a couple of elk farms in Alaska that could sell cows to us as we start out.
