After 5 decades of strategic Red Deer breeding, we are proud to be internationally recognised as experts in our field. Our breeding program’s objective is to produce a high value animal with a venison focus, from an efficient maternal weight hind using the latest technology and best genetics available.

The Wilkins Farming Red Deer stud has been breeding deer for over five decades. Committed to the deer industry, we believe in combining our considerable expertise and experience, with innovation and cutting-edge technology.

Our superior herd of over 1500 DNA tested and fully recorded hinds, is a result of our absolute unwavering commitment to our strategy and vision for over 50 years. Investing in the best genetics and application of world leading technology has resulted in numerous record-breaking successes such as:
• Churchill – W12eBV #1 English +17.7 (October English Sire Summary 2020)
• Rock Me – 20 kg of OG Velvet at 4 years of age
• Tui – CDeBV #1 European -9.8 days (October European and Composite Summary 2020)
• WF 410/16 – Weighing a massive 291 kg in January 2019, we believe this stag is the biggest 2 year old stag ever sold at auction in New Zealand
• WF 900/16 – Recording a colossal W12eBV of +22.10, we believe this is a New Zealand record for this type
• Maple – 6.7 kg of SA2 Velvet at 2 years of age

We are driven by success to remain the top performers in our field, proudly standing behind our product.

Breeding Philosophy:
Our breeding program’s objective is to produce a high value animal with a venison focus, from an efficient maternal weight hind using the latest technology and best genetics available.

We use world leading genetics and combine them with performance measures such as ultrasound scanning, CT scanning, DEERSelect, progeny testing and DNA testing to achieve our consistent, best in class results.
Fastidious recording and tracking of key trait data ensures we mate the right hind to the suitable stag to achieve precise breeding goals. During the selection process, we are constantly reviewing breed values, bloodlines and performance to date.
