Nutritional excellence from a name you can trust At ForFarmers we understand the challenges you face in modern day Deer management and the importance of ensuring balanced nutrition at every stage of the deer’s life. Cairngorm Deer Feeds are a comprehensive range of proven deer feed which gives you the confidence that the nutritional needs of your animals are met at every stage of production. Cairngorm Deer Feeds are specifically formulated to meet the nutritional requirements of all species of deer any time of year. They are designed to the latest nutritional standards to provide optimum levels of protein, energy, minerals, vitamins and trace elements to supplement the available forage and/or grazing.

Provides the young calf with a high protein and high energy starter ration. Balance of amino acids, vitamins and minerals to promote healthy growth and skeletal development. Creep fed prior to weaning, and for two to three months after weaning. Daily intake varies according to the age and breed of deer calf or fawn Between 0.25 and 1.00kg/head/day should be fed in conjunction with good quality conserved forage.

WINTER FEEDING As winter approaches and temperatures drop it is essential to provide extra energy to protect deer against the cold, and minimise weight loss. Deer over-wintered outside require supplementary feeding. This is particularly important for those deer in exposed environments which can have an energy requirement that is 50% higher than similar housed animals. Supplementary feed is an integral tool in deer management and can have a positive impact on deer growth over the winter period. During the winter months it is vital that pregnant hinds receive adequate nutrition in order to meet their own needs and the demands of a growing foetus. 1st and 2nd parity hinds and does will still be growing so additional nutrition is required. The correct mix of well-balanced Cairngorm Grower No. 1 feed with conserved forage will be able to meet these enhanced demands during the winter months.

STAG FEEDING Ensuring Stags have the correct feed is particularly important. Having lost up to a third of their body weight during the rut, Stags need to recover condition before the worst of the winter sets in. First year stags being reared for finishing the following autumn, need the extra energy and higher nutrient specification of the Cairngorm Grower No. 1 feed in order to ensure consistent growth, particularly if forage is not top quality. Appetites are relatively low in winter and poor forage quality can result in low feed intake. Therefore, adequate supplementation is necessary to ensure the nutrient requirements of growing stags are met.

MAINTAINING HEALTH The most common health concerns affecting deer are worm infestations. If you do not have deer handling facilities, Cairngorm Deer Feeds can be supplemented with a prescribed in-feed wormer, which is a very effective and convenient way of worming deer. (Please note that a veterinary prescription is legally required). The most beneficial times of year to worm deer are: • just before the rut. • again in the late spring when housed animals are being turned out and hinds and does are approaching calving. • repeat treatment in mid-summer.
