Just yesterday the Novonikolsk stud farm received 170 head of red deer from Gorny Altai. The animals shipped to the farm in the cattle trucks for eight days. But each of them is safe and sound. Experts expect the deer to aid in the production of antlers based medicines and extracts.
The photo report is presented by blogger smitsmitty.
The animals were put into the cattle trucks right from the taiga and required two days for adaptation.
They made several stops to feed the animals. This is not the first time a haul like this has been done..
Cows and horses have already been transported to remote distances so they have some experience and know what to do to keep the deer safe.
These Volvo trucks have all necessary equipment for feeding, watering animals, manure removal.
They traveled the distance from the Altai Krai to Primorye in eight days.
Upon arrival the animals are put into quarantine and checked for foot-and-mouth disease and anthrax. They were also inoculated for it
They are still young, born in summer 2014.
Red deer get acclimatized rather well.
Now they are experiencing the molting season.
Old residents of the place.
Vasiliy is the very person who created the farm from nothing.
They have about 500 sika deer at the farm.
As for red deer they plan to bring 200-250 more in autumn.
Their dream is to create the service of curative baths based on useful properties of red deer antlers. Today it’s available only in Altai.
Such baths are said to cure many diseases and help to restore health after surgery.
They also have horses, camels, boars and yaks.
Thanks for the great job, smitsmitty!
