Wilkins Farming Herd Sires

We have been expertly developing our breeding programme over the last five decades. World-leading genetics and best in class animal husbandry ensures our consistent herd performance.

The key sires used within our breeding programme are featured here.  You will note we focus on four types of Red Deer, that each contribute their own specific performance strengths, traits and bloodlines.

Progeny of these stags is available annually by public auction or private treaty. +view

Eastern Sires

 

Eastern Deer are bred specifically for venison, velvet and antler production. Our Eastern stud contains incredible depth with over 35 years of selective breeding in New Zealand.

The key Eastern Red Deer attributes we look for are:

  • High growth rate – Easterns are the largest type for Red Deer and sizes is an important attribute
  • Early conception – Easterns mate earlier therefore calve earlier
  • Clean heavy beamed velvet and antler combined with length and width in beam that is not commonly seen in other Red Deer. Seldom do you see snags and bifurcations
  • Good temperament
  • Type of animal i.e. good body conformation and type

  • High growth rate
  • Breeding efficiency
  • Good meat yield i.e. loin size and meat to bone ratios
  • Type of animal i.e. good body conformation and constitution
  • Good temperament
  • High fertility
  • Velvet production

Maternals

Maternal Red Deer are breed specifically as replacement hinds. Maternal sires are a great solution to introduce to a European herd in order to stabilize via the hardier traits and/or body size of English and German bloodlines:

The key Maternal Red Deer attributes we look for are:

  • Good growth rates
  • Breeding efficiency including milking ability
  • Hardiness
  • Good meet yield i.e. loin size and meat to bone ratios
  • Type of animal i.e. good body confirmation & constitution
  • Good temperament
  • High fertility
  • Velvet production

Woburn English

Woburn English Red Deer reflect 100’s of years of managed breeding. Most likely the longest standing breeding programme of Red Deer in the world.

The key Woburn attributes we look for are similar to our maternal traits, but the Pure English bloodline is the key point of difference. Especially of note is the superior velvet and antler production, and the records achieved for these traits within the Woburn bloodline.

The key Woburn Red Deer attributes we look for are:

  • Pure Woburn English bloodline
  • Antler and velvet production
  • Good growth rates
  • Breeding efficiency including milking ability
  • Hardiness
  • Good meat yield i.e. loin size and meat to bone ratios
  • Good temperament
  • High fertility
