Black Forest velvet genetic performance is well documented on-farm and can be further measured by the outstanding results achieved in competition.

Velvet quality and quantity is the primary objective of our breeding programme.

The Black Forest velvet breeding program has focussed on a clean attractive style that brings a premium in the market, our velvet Sires are cutting approx 10kg SA2 or more at maturity.

Black Forest stags have won more prizes at the National Velvet competitions in recent year that any other.

On-going investment in improving the genetic base and efficiency of your herd is an integral component in long-term commercial deer farming profitability. Velvet production improvement takes at least three years after the introduction of a new stag so the sooner you can introduce superior genetics into your herd the sooner you profit

Proven consistent performance from Black Forest Park & ex Black Forest entries through independent assessment of weight, grade & quality further confirms Black Forest Parks position as the leading breeder of consistent quality velvet genetics.

We believe the independent evaluation & benchmarking provided by the NZ Velvet competition is of very significant value to Deer Farmers & the Industry & restate our commitment of support.
