“NADeFA has always been our industry’s strongest driving force for growth and sensible regulation and management of farm-raised deer. We’re very excited to once again have the association’s support in honoring the W.I.L.D Awards,” says John Meng, owner of BuckBreeders.com and DeerWire news service. “The W.I.L.D. Awards recognize industry innovations and acknowledge the leadership of individuals who are growing the cervid and exotic wildlife industries, while preserving ranching and outdoor opportunities for future generations.”

Founded in 1983, the North American Deer Farmers Association is dedicated to the promotion of deer farming and ranching as an agricultural pursuit and serves its members through its educational programs and publications and by providing leadership in setting and maintaining quality standards. NADeFA represents the deer farming industry at all levels of government, and works closely with livestock producers and other organizations to promote ethical standards of conduct and husbandry in deer farming and to actively market standards for deer and deer products. NADeFA representatives are also available to media for expert testimony and information about deer farming and animal health issues, such as Chronic Wasting Disease, EHD and other topics.
