Study

I am conducting a research study at Iowa State University and I would be grateful if you had the time to respond to two questions:

1. What is your biggest fear or problem as a deer farmer?
2. What are you doing to prevent it from happening?

Thank you!

Chris

My biggest problem is CWD in the wild. When it is found in my county it will close down out of State sales for me. I have wasted 18 years of testing for CWD on our facility at my expense and it will not help me when they find CWD in our county in the wild deer and they will. If the State was testing 100% of their deer harvested like we game farmers have to do they would have found CWD 18 years ago in the wild everywhere.

We are reducing our deer and elk numbers so when it happens we can just slaughter them.
We are moving into other animals that don't get CWD.
The CWD rules were written to eliminate the deer farmer.
