attract interest By JOE G TAYLOR Extension Agent Diversification into exotic hoofs tock production is being considered an income producing alternative from the use of highly adaptable range resource now that the wool incentive payment program is scheduled to ter minate after 1994 Exotic production systems arc capital labor and man agement intensive and should not be attempted without a complete feasi bility and financial analysis of the con templated system Exotic production is attractive to many ranchers since livestock pro duction systems arc already in place and the environment in Texas is very adaptable Also the price of exotic ani mals appears substantially higher than the price of cattle sheep and goats In addition there is a growing con sumer awareness of the harmful effects of excess saturated fats in the diet This awareness implies a potential expan sion of markets for game meat products which arc substantially lower in satu rated fats According to Dr Charles Ramsey Wildlife Specialist there arc over 60 species of hoofstock already present in Texas The most abundant species include several varieties of elk sika axis red and fallow deer aoudad and mouflan sheep Fanning and ranching systems arc the most common exotic production methods The primary difference in these two systems is the degree of intensification Farming practices nor mally include frequent handling of ani mals controlled feeding systems and close daily monitoring and controls Ranching systems on the other hand include no handling or herd health practices and the livestock arc allowed to graze and roam freely on open ranches but require deer proof fencing Despite a substantial number of farms and ranches in Texas and in the which arc stocking exotic species deer farming and ranching is still a relatively unexplored industry Persons interested in deer farming or ranching should keep in mind that mar kets for exotic production include meat breeders and sport hunting Each of these three outlets require different management skills Deer farming on a commercial scale has become an established indus try in New Zealand Australia and England In addition to start up exotic livestock purchase deer farming will require major capital investments to prepare land for production to con struct deer proof fencing and water containment processing quarantine and meat handling if meat sales arc contemplated facilities In addition deer farming will require a major labor and management com mitment A recent survey of fallow deer farm ing operations in Texas by researchers at Texas University indicated that a 200 female breeding unit deer farm required an initial investment of about SI followed by negative cash outlays for about three years The example enterprise accumulat ed about in net negative cash flow over a five year period When a nominal expected rate of return of five percent on the investment was added the investment jumped to a negative over the five year period Deer Ranching Deer ranching is not as intensive as deer farming but would also be con sidered capital intensive and require the intensification of labor and man agement A recent survey of deer ranches in SouthCentral Texas indicated that a combination of several exotic species required an average investment of about per breeding female unit BFU and an accumulated negative cash flow of about for the first five years of operation With a five percent expected rate of return the investment showed losses of over over the first five years The investment generated a rate of return of about three and onehalf per cent by year seven LANDA STATION 6293311 BA STEAK SHRIMP Seafood Sunday Wed Night Burgers Kitchen Hours 11 am 9 pm Friday Sat 11 am til 11 pm Family size ORings Mon Nile 16oz FROZEN FRIDAY
