Recording

Recording

Recording information about the health condition of your deer and treatments administered is important as it will assist you with day-to-day stock management decisions and enable you to fill in the Animal Status Declaration correctly when transporting deer off the farm.

If you note observations about the health or otherwise of your animals, you will be able to spot emerging trends and deal more effectively with the underlying problem.  

When filling in the Animal Status Declaration, it is necessary to note treatments administered to the transported animals, so that veterinary medicine withholding periods are observed before the animals are slaughtered for entry to the food chain.
