Growing feed for Deer & Roos. in Feral Animals April 26, 2018, 09:44:28 AM
I hope this is the right place to post this, I could not see a board any better suited.


Can anyone advise me as to which would be the best grasses/feed to sow for deer & roos?

    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the one less travelled by,
     and that has made all the difference.

    Roos are not fussy Keith, deer? Not sure any grass I would imagine.... do you have Norco there? They will be able to advise.

    Okay, thank you. Ryegrass will probably do it.

    what is the purpose of your question? are you trying to encourage deer and roos on your property with the idea of hunting them?
    Deer prefer a mixed diet of grazing herbs, legumes and grasses (without endophyte). In recent years, grazing herbs (chicory, plantain) have become a valuable inclusion in deer pastures. Chicory and plantain are both productive species that contain elevated minerals including copper, selenium and cobalt.

    Encourage yes, hunt no. Thank you for the information.
