I have been deer farming for almost 10 years.  I have always paid close attention to my overall herd health doing everything from cleaning feeders and disinfecting water troughs to liming and fertilizing my pens.  But I never vaccinated. 

In 2010, my breeding program expanded.  I started buying deer from other farms and with that started having more and more health issues.  Pneumonia, E-Coli, you name it, I had it!  But I still refused to vaccinate believing you could ruin their immune system in the process. In 2013 I lost 50% of my fawns, and 20% of adult deer mainly to mycoplasma, bacterial pneumonia.  After the most trying year emotionally, I decided to make a change and implement a vaccination program.  Having heard a lot about Cervid Solutions vaccine products I gave Josh Newton a call.  After a lengthy discussion about my experiences in past years he shared some of his thoughts and helped develop an effective management plan specific to my farm.

In the spring of 2014, I vaccinated with Cervid Solutions products for the first time.  The positive results have been astounding.  It has been by far the most enjoyable spring and summer I’ve had since I started deer farming.  I urge every farmer and rancher to try Pneu-Vac 2 and Eco-Vac from Cervid Soltuions. Without a doubt this program has changed the economics on my farm years to come.
