White-tailed deer – hidden costs to farmers and management considerations” with Joseph B. Paulin, Conservation Expert, Wildlife Management, New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station, Rutgers Cooperative Extension

Join us on Thursday, May 19th at 7pm for a presentation on white-tailed deer – 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).

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.

Find out more about this study and deer management considerations by joining us on Thursday, May 19th at “Backyard Forestry in 90 Minutes” online.

“Backyard Forestry in 90 Minutes” (BYF) is a free educational program series sponsored by NJ Forestry Association, State Forestry Services & Rutgers Cooperative Extension. The program, now online, takes place on the THIRD Thursday of every month from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm.
