Red deer breeding, an option in Tzucacab

The production of red deer at the Tantakín Technological Development Center, a species native to New Zealand and from which its meat and antlers are used with permission from the Ministry of the Environment, Natural Resources and Fisheries (Semarnat), was adapted to the climate since its arrival in 1993.

Reynaldo Alejandro Hiuit Cuevas, promoter of the livestock unit, reported that this species arrived in Tantakín in 1993 and has already adapted to the climatic conditions.

The animals have shade from trees, shade netting, and fresh water available. As for their diet, it consists of grass, ramón, and leucaena similar to that of cattle.

Deer reproduction is perfect and they receive their vaccines on a timely manner to protect them from diseases.

This species is very susceptible to parasites and ticks need to be constantly controlled.

“Its meat and antlers are used, many want it as a trophy, for crafts, among other things,” said Hiuit Cuevas.

Red deer breeding can be another alternative in livestock farming since the producer only has to have permission from Semarnat to enter red deer production.
