The deer breeder’s voice in Europe


The Federation of European Deer Farmers Associations (“FEDFA”) was established in 1990 and now represents the deer farming industries of 18 countries.

FEDFA has good lines of communication with all members and with the appropriate EU authorities in Brussels. FEDFA has been active in helping and advising on the implementation of EU legislation affecting deer farmers. In addition, FEDFA promotes improvements in deer farming and coordinates action on welfare, breeding and disease control measures with particular emphasis on research. Recently it has also turned its attention to the important topic of marketing. The Presidency circulates round member countries and is currently held by Poland.

FEDFA is making a positive contribution to the future of this growing industry and is seeking to increase this influence by attracting members from all European countries both inside and outside the European Union.
