Exotics

I am about to start a new job managing a ranch in Florida. I am needing to find game farms dealing with exotics. Any information will be helpful. Interested in quality and diversity.
Thanks

Make sure you have a couple of good guard dogs to protect your livestock. Coyotes will jump fences, and they are good at it. While your livestock are eating trees leaves, a coyote is planning it's attack.

I love exotics. The last promise I need to keep to my father is bring him on a European Red Stag hunt. Even if he's in a wheelchair by then.

Haha. Best of luck. That would be a great gift! I can only imagine how fun a hunt like that would be.

Livestock famers: Raising deer for meat?

Probably a lame question, but would there be any reason for this to become popular? I only know that venison is quite tasty.

It's all about the market. If you can find a big enough market in your country for raising deer to be economical to sell as meat, do it!

It's all about awareness, hunters, farmers and countryman know that venison is a tasty meat. But some people in large towns/cities may not even be aware of its existence.

I get all mine from my friend who is a game keeper.

If you can educate people on this meat then of course it has potential to become popular. It's healthy, lean, traditional and protein rich.

In the UK a handful of farms I know of raise deer for meat and they sell it to butchers, farmers markets and restaurants/pubs usually direct.

It's a great product and sells well here, it's even being slowly introduced into supermarkets too. Though it's cost does outprice a lot of people from trying it.

So to re-iterate it's all about education, awareness, market and price!

If you do get it running don't forget all the bi-products of deer and the products that can be made from hide, bone, antler ect...

I'm going to be starting my own deer farm in Kentucky at some point in the near future. Only done a few market research tests, but it's got enormous potential. You'll have to check your local meat outlets (grocery stores/butchers/farmer's markets etc) and see if there are people who would buy it if they could.

Do some research. There's a whole heap of knowledge you need to learn before committing to something like raising deer. They aren't a common farm animal, so you'll have to do some digging to find the info. At the time of this posting, it seems to be down, but check at www.deerfarmer.com for some good ideas.

Deer Farmer?

A while back I came across a cabin that had a friendly fat man out front. He had a pen that contained a buck deer in it as well.

Anyone else come across this? I can’t find it for the life of me now. For some odd reason it was also crawling with rattlesnakes. I need a few snake hides and that place would have been the perfect place.

That's what I am saying. The investment cost for hunting is prohibitive to those who with no hunting background
