DEERCARE HANDLING buildings

Our buildings are designed using the benefits of 40 years experience in deer handling and are comprised of two critical elements; a building and a set of corrals. These two components are essential to successful deer handling; together they will accommodate a relatively large number of deer.

The building walls consist of tanalised plywood sheets mounted on horizontal rails supported on “telegraph pole” type posts. 

The corrals completely surround the building and are shaped to avoid corners and aid the flow of animals. They are big enough to contain relatively large numbers but small enough that you have control without over crowding. 

The corral gates are galvanised steel frames clad with plywood sheets.
