This publication reports on studies conducted over two seasons that compared a range of feed supplements provided to fallow deer for the first 10-12 weeks post-weaning, and monitored the performance of the deer when they were turned onto high-quality annual medic and perennial lucerne during late winter and spring. Management strategies to increase the proportion of weaners that reach marketable weights by early summer are discussed.
