We keep the 9 month to 1 yr old does away from the bucks until they are 1.5 yrs old . Lastyear after breeding season we didn't let the whole herd back together until March 1st . So one of last years doe fawns came into heat in march.

I'm sure you've probably answered this to other people before but, what all do you do with your deer you raise?

Is the buck in the back of the first photo asking if it is my baby?
We aren't sure who the father or the mother is,OUT OF 12 doe we have it narrowed down to 3. Out of those nobody is showing a milk bag . When we get dna test back we will know . The deer industry has gone that far with dna now , cost around $75 animal . The fawn born was a doe ,which is eating and doing fine . Mrs deer farmer has been looking @ dog sweaters for her to get by until her winter coat kicks in . Also bought a heating pad from tractors supply for her .
