Deer velvet removal

The New Zealand deer industry is dedicated to protecting deer welfare during the process of velvet removal (‘velvetting’). By funding ongoing research, the industry supports the development of new techniques and methods for velvet removal, and the wealth of research done so far are embodied by the Code of Practice for the Welfare of Stags during the Removal of Velvet, guidelines developed and published by the New Zealand government’s National Animal Welfare Advisory Committee, in collaboration with animal welfare groups and the New Zealand Veterinary Association.

  • All deer velvet removal is done under strict governmental supervision and according to the Code
  • Removal is pain-free, done using a local anesthetic in a process designed to minimize stress.
  • Facilities are kept under the most stringent standards of hygiene
  • Only veterinarians or certified farmers may perform the removal
  • Farmers receive certification by the National Velvetting Standards Body (NVSB), only after completing a special training program and passing written, oral and practical examinations
  • The NVSB performs annual auditing to ensure that practices are done according to their standards
  • Deer live in beautiful open spaces and enjoy a completely natural lifestyle
  • Annual removal of deer antlers replicates a natural process and prevents dangerous aggression in male deer
