Feeding Directions

Description

This feed was developed to provide balanced nutrition for Whitetail deer, Mule deer and exotic species in confinement.

1. Feed free-choice to deer. Consumption will vary according to age, sex, climate, and physiological state but should be in the range of two to four pounds per 100 pounds of body weight.

2. It is necessary to feed hay with this product. Allow 0.25 to 0.5 lb of legume hay per 100 lb of body weight daily.

3. Antler Advantage™ Breeder Textured 16-5 can be fed free-choice as a creep feed to fawns. Target consumption should be about one pound per 100 pounds of body weight until weaning.

Management Practices
1. A feeding program is only as effective as the management practices. Actual results can vary depending upon feed intake, environmental conditions and the quality of the management practices

2. Provide water and Purina® AntlerMax® Deer Mineral at all times.

3. For best results space feeding stations uniformly throughout the property.

4. Number of feeding stations required depends on population density but in most cases one feeder per 25 – 30 deer is sufficient.

5. If deer density is not known, start with one feeding station per 100-200 acres and monitor feed consumption to determine if more feeding stations are needed.

6. Consult your veterinarian for a recommended herd health and parasite control programs.
