Deer can be farmed on a fenced piece of land suitable for grazing with deer raised for the purpose of hunting tourism or as livestock.
As the USA currently produces only 20 percent of the venison needed to supply its domestic markets, deer farming is becoming more and more of an attractive proposition. The demand for venison has grown in recent years due to it being high in protein and low in fat, and as an alternative to factory-farmed meat.
Deer farming is attractive due to having the potential to be more profitable than raising traditional livestock. Deer are adaptable to many terrains, allowing farmers to utilize small tracts of marginal land for great profit, mature more quickly, consume less fodder than cattle, are less damaging to pastures, and can reproduce for up to 20 years in captivity
