A small group of New Jersey farmers lost nearly $1.3 million to deer damage in 2019, according to a new report by Rutgers Cooperative Extension (RCE) and the Rutgers New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station (NJAES).
The New Jersey Forestry Association will hold a White-tailed Deer – Hidden Costs to Farmers and Management Considerations webinar on May 19th from 7 to 8:30 pm
In the report, “White-Tailed Deer and the Hidden Costs to Farmers’ Livelihoods: A Case Study of New Jersey Stories,” researchers conducted in-depth case studies of 27 farmers about their experiences, some dating back to the 1960s, with white-tailed deer regarding environmental damage, safety concerns, management challenges and impacts to operations as the number of deer has grown.
Joseph Paulin, Conservation Expert from Rutgers Extension will explain this study and deer management considerations
