Breeding red deer

It is worth noting that the Carpathian species of deer (Servus elaphus montanus) is bred in the nursery. By the way, this is the most revered hunting trophy in Europe. They decorated almost all of the trophy rooms in old castles.

There are four zones in the nursery, which are clearly divided and differ not only in the living conditions of the deer, but also in their diet.

The breeding nursery contains the base of the gene pool, which includes red deer from the Carpathian region of Romania, and 30-40 females from Hungary.
In the nursery for young animals, individuals are raised, which are taken from the female at the age of one year. The diet focuses on the development of the skeleton and the growth of muscle mass.
In the nursery for older individuals, deer that have reached the age of three are placed. In this case, the diet focuses on the development of horns.
In the free nursery there are deer that are intended for hunting.
