Deer & Game Services started it all for the Jermy family in the late 1970’s, but it was our stud and commercial enterprises under the STANFIELD umbrella that bred the finest red deer in the world in size for 30 years and by value for 27 years straight that now, since retiring the stud, creates an opportunity for farmers to capitalize on our 30 plus years of knowledge gained but retained to protect our commercial interests.
However, now all that knowledge can be shared willingly with farmers to help lift their performance. Simply put I can share with you my world best systems for growing wonderful stock and by the way naturally, not artificially.
