Chaffhaye for Deer & Exotics

Why Chaffhaye Is The Best Option For Your Deer Or Exotics!

If you are an owner of a prized deer herd or group of exotics, you have probably faced the difficult challenge of finding consistent quality forage. It is not always easy to keep the digestive system of deer and exotics properly functioning, while also meeting a large percentage of your animals’ daily nutrient requirements at a reasonable cost. Chaffhaye provides the best solution to your feeding problems. Chaffhaye is the superior alternative to feeding baled hay and processed feeds.

There are a variety of interest in promoting healthy deer and elk populations. These interests include promoting wildlife preservation and welfare, increasing enjoyment of ownership and maximizing profitability of quality stock for venison, antlers and hunting. Regardless of the objective, the greatest barrier to the development of healthy herds is a lack of quality nutrition. In fact, most experts consider malnutrition as the most common disease among antlered herds. Malnutrition is especially acute during late winter and early spring when many herds become overwhelmed by extreme habitat change, forage quality fluctuation and high mortality.

The solution? Feeding Chaffhaye Alfalfa as the foundation of any highly nutritious feeding program. For antlered animals, Chaffhaye Alfalfa represents a viable feed solution with its balance of digestible fiber, high-quality protein, energy and essential vitamins and minerals. Benefits include:

• Improved weight gain and body scores

• Unmatched antler growth

• Improved resistance to CWD

• Higher reproductive rates, lower fawn losses

When Changing Feed

Chaffhaye is designed to meet the forage portion of your animal’s diet. Depending on such factors as age, breed, available pasture, an energy and/or vitamin and mineral supplement may be needed. Consult your animal nutritionist for further information.

After observing your deer for a period of time on Chaffhaye, you may want to increase or decrease by up to 10% to obtain the desired overall body condition and appearance.

Feed changes should be made gradually over a period of 7 to 10 days. Changes in the rate of feeding should not exceed 2 pounds per day.
