Haldon Station Deer

As one of the industry’s original pioneers of deer farming in New Zealand, Haldon Station has from the beginning endeavoured to breed genetically superior high performing red deer, producing top quality venison and velvet.

With Haldon’s initial herd being developed in the days of live capture, the herd’s genetics have improved considerably with the establishment of an on farm breeding programme and the selection of only top performing animals being picked to enter the breeding program in order to create an elite breeding herd.

In more recent times, top European blood lines have been introduced in an ongoing pursuit of producing absolute quality progeny. Haldon deer are renowned and bred for their quiet temperament, quality body weights and impressive velvet yields.

Haldon Station received the Deer Industry New Zealand Environmental Award 2006 for Excellence and Innovation in a Demanding Environment. Presented by the Deer Industry of New Zealand and the New Zealand Deer Farmers Association, Sponsored by Duncan and Co.
