A cow’s milk, while rich in nutrients, is far less nutrient dense than a doe’s milk.

For many years, most hunters, farmers and land managers considered deer and cattle relatively equal in terms of their habitat needs, including the food they consumed and the nutrients they required. While the knowledge base has grown to the point where many people recognize there are differences, the two species are still often times lumped together. This is an understandable theory since we often find deer and cattle co-existing in the same areas.

Food plot varieties should be heavily leafed, thin stemmed and high in nutrients, like Imperial Whitetail Clover. This type of forage works best for deer.
