If you need contacts around the world, we'll try to help. But if your deer are dying, or you want to build a fence, sorry, we can't help you. We're publishers, not veterinarians or farmers. If you want to set up a deer farm or have a practical deer farming problem, your first call should be to your local deer farmers' association. Most deer farmers are very generous with information and their time.
