DBC North American Deer Registry Update

NORTH AMERICAN DEER REGISTRY UPDATE
North American Deer Registry Office
Phone Number: 405-513-7228
When working your deer this fall don’t forget to pull samples on all your Bucks and Does that are in your breeding program.
Why Is This Important?
NADR is transitioning to new technology for Parentage beginning in 2017.  This new technology is called SNPs and will be utilized side by side with our old technology, STRs, until every breeder is fully transitioned over.  At that time, we will only utilize SNP technology for parentage testing.
What Are the Advantages?
  1. Lower costs
  2. More markers which means easier to interpret data and results
What Does Each Breeder Need to Do?
 
Although we expect this transition to take several years, each breeder can speed up their own ranches transition by proactively doing the following.
  1. Obtain a sample from any buck or doe that was tested prior to 2017 that you expect to produce offspring in the future.
  2. Contact the NADR office and coordinate submitting these samples with your 2017 fawns.
  3. Once your herd is transitioned, any future fawns submitted will only utilize the SNP technology for testing which will result in a reduced price to the breeder.
Will the Breeder Have to Pay To Transition His Breeding Stock to SNPs?
For every fawn sample submitted, NADR will process a Buck or Doe free of charge.  This will help expedite the transition for your ranch.   If you have questions, please call the NADR office and someone will walk you thru the process.

Texans Urged to Celebrate National Hunting and Fishing Day Saturday, Sept. 23

Texans Urged to Celebrate National Hunting and Fishing Day Saturday, Sept. 23

AUSTIN – National Hunting and Fishing Day, an annual celebration of the contributions hunters and anglers make in conserving and protecting the nation’s wild resources, is set for Saturday, Sept. 23.

Congress established National Hunting and Fishing Day to recognize hunters and anglers for their leadership in fish and wildlife conservation. Since launching in 1971, the day has been formally proclaimed by every U.S. president and countless governors and mayors.

In proclaiming National Hunting and Fishing Day in Texas, Gov. Greg Abbott said, “At this time, I encourage all Texans to learn more about and participate in our time-honored traditions of hunting and angling and recognize the ecological, cultural, and economic benefits they provide.”

“Texas’ rich hunting and fishing heritage needs no introduction, but there are those among us who have not had the opportunity to experience our state’s great natural bounties firsthand,” said Carter Smith, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department Executive Director. “As we celebrate National Hunting and Fishing Day in Texas, I encourage each of you to take a friend, family member or co-worker fishing or hunting so they, too, can become part of our strong outdoor community of conservationists.”

Led by sportsman President Theodore Roosevelt, early conservationists urged sustainable use of fish and game, created hunting and fishing licenses, and lobbied for taxes on sporting equipment to provide funds for state conservation agencies. These actions were the foundation of the North American wildlife conservation model, a science-based, user-pay system that would foster the most dramatic conservation successes of all time.

Each year sportsmen and women are funding more projects that enable more public access areas to be open. Through license sales and excise taxes on equipment, hunters and anglers pay for most fish and wildlife conservation programs. On average, hunters spend $1,638 every year on the sport. Portions of these funds are allocated to support conservation.

This year, NASCAR legend Richard Childress has been selected to serve as the honorary chairman for National Hunting and Fishing Day. Childress, a 2017 inductee into the NASCAR Hall of Fame, currently serves as Chairman and CEO of Richard Childress Racing, a world-class high performance auto racing team based in Welcome, North Carolina.

Thank you,

Dear Cervid Farming Community:
Hurricane Irma has affected every county in Florida. I hope that everyone in our community came through the storm and is safe. If you suffered losses or damages to your deer farm, we would like to hear about it. The University of Florida is collecting information from all parts of the agricultural sector to assess damages to the agricultural industry. Deer farming is an underappreciated contributor to the ag economy here in Florida, so it is especially important that your voice is heard at this time.
Please take a few minutes to fill out the following survey. The information will be shared with state and federal officials to assess losses, issues and needs across the state. The survey can be found here:
This link includes reporting of losses to Ag and horticulture crops, forestry, animals including dairy and beef cattle, poultry and other farm animals including cervids, and loss of infrastructure and equipment.  If you believe that a specific Ag-related loss is not included in this survey please specify it and include it in a category closest to it.
With warmest regards-Sam

TDA Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund

Harvey brought its worst but Texans brought their best…

TDA members fought wind and waves to bring help and hope to their neighbors

CEDAR PARK, TEXAS (September 13, 2017)–August of 2017 will go down in history as the month that would change the landscape of our state forever.  Hurricane Harvey blew into Texas at Rockport, before continuing East up the coast line and parking over southeast Texas.  It began to rain—such an interminable downpour the likes of which had not been witnessed in generations.  Live were lost, homes were lost, equipment was lost, but hope was never was, thanks to the thousands upon thousands of volunteers across the state who have reached out to make all the difference in the world to their fellow neighbor. That Harvey hit our state is a tragedy, indeed.  But it has also given us the opportunity to shine as beacons of generosity, love, friendship, and showing the world just what it means to be a Texan.

“The degree to which TDA members stepped up to the plate to offer resources, equipment, donations, or even lodging at their own ranches has been tremendous,” said Patrick Tarlton, executive director of the Texas Deer Association (TDA).  We’ve witnessed such an outpouring of support from memberships, and we are ready and willing to pass that on to any who finds themselves in a difficult situation after Harvey,” said Patrick.

In addition to calling through its entire list of members, TDA quickly created #DeerRelief—an online database that allowed members to either offer assistance or to seek it out from other members.

“In the deer industry, we aren’t just competitors, we are family. I’m proud of the way our Association jumped into action to create #DeerRelief for Hurricane Harvey victims,” said TDA President Mark Hubbard. “Since its creation, hundreds of people have accessed our link, giving us the ability to connect with members from every portion of the affected areas of Texas.”

A number of TDA board, former board, staff and membership set out to deliver in-person assistance during the darkest days of Hurricane Harvey and its aftermath.  These hometown heroes selflessly have given of themselves and their resources to try and help their fellow Texans.  From helping clear debris in Rockport, helping at an evacuee processing center in Vidor, to driving boats in Beaumont, to directing supplies and managing centers in Cleveland to flying supplies to communities completely cut off by flood waters all over southeast Texas, our members have stepped up to the plate to do their part.

“Harvey may have hit us with its worst, but we are pushing back with our very best,” said Hubbard. “And TDA members and staff are leading the way, every step of the way.”

The path to rebuilding will lives, facilities, businesses, and normalcy will certainly take months, perhaps even years.  But TDA is committed to helping out deer breeders every step of the way.  If you or someone you know in the deer business has been impacted by Hurricane Harvey, please ask them to visit us at: https://texasdeerassociation.com/hurricane-harvey-relief-fund/
