Deer have varying nutritional needs throughout the year. The Antler King ® Program is designed to meet these needs in the most economical way. Bucks and Does have a high demand for protein, minerals, and vitamins from February through August, for antler growth and milk production. From September through January, both bucks and does have a lesser requirement for protein, minerals, and vitamins, but a greater demand for energy.
Whether you’re feeding one or one thousand animals, Antler King has a program for you. Our three step approach is perfect for people feeding deer in their backyard, the individual who is supplemental feeding to produce quality whitetails on his/her land or for the Deer Rancher.
The Antler King ® Program for Deer will meet the varying nutritional requirements for deer.
Corn has been used extensively in feeding deer because it is a good source of energy and is almost always cheaper per ton than a commercially manufactured supplement. This use of corn has resulted in a continuing problem with grain engorgement. Grain engorgement is caused by the rapid intake of a large amount of corn or other grain sources over a short period of time. The grain is rapidly fermented which causes a rapid drop in rumen pH. This damages the rumen wall and may actually lower blood pH causing metabolic acidosis. A severe diarrhea can develop and death is often the result. It is NOT recommended to feed corn as the SOLE source of grain!
Antler King’s ® Deer Irresistible is the answer! Antler King’s ® Deer Irresistible is designed to supplement corn. Antler King’s ® Deer Irresistible contains a highly concentrated yeast culture as well as Vitamin E and Selenium to help deer in several ways. The Concentrated Yeast Culture will increase feed efficiency by helping the deer break down corn, browse, and all other feedstuffs. The Vitamin E and Selenium will aid the deer’s immune system by helping them deal with stressful periods such as harsh winters, droughts, and post rut stress.
For just pennies a day, Antler King’s ® Deer Irresistible when mixed with corn will benefit deer, giving you bigger and healthier deer!
