The Story of Korean deer antlers

Listen to the story

The kind of local deer breeding.


 There are about 90 species of deer distributed around the world, and deer, which used to be for hunting, have only recently begun to be raised, and reindeer have been raised as livestock for about 2,500 years. 

Deer, which we are familiar with, are mainly raised as deer belonging to red deer (plum green), red deer (dale green), bok, elk (marok), and reindeer, and New Zealand, Australia, and Russia are the main producers.

Deer is a ruminant with four stomachs, such as a cow or sheep, and its legs are thin and long, making it suitable for walking, and it has evolved to run fast to protect the body from natural enemies, and has a lifespan of 10 to 20 years.

It is characterized by no gallbladder except for musk deer.

Only males have horns, and females do not.

However, reindeer have horns in both males and females, and they become fallen every year and new horns come out.

Civet deer have long fangs instead of horns, and their fur varies depending on seasonal influences.

Young deer are usually speckled and are semipreciprocal animals that reproduce seasonally.

Types of Domestic Breeding Deer


Sika deer, Cervus nippon

It is a small deer that accounts for 59% of deer raised in Korea, with white spots on the body. Only males have horns, four ends of branches, white spots on their hips, and the hind legs are clear, and are well adapted to Korea's climate. Although the fertility is strong, the production of deer antlers per unit weight is smaller than that of large species, and the body weight is 3 to 5kg, and the adult green is 60kg for females and 100kg for males. The average production of deer antlers is about 900g per two, and females come to rut in October to December and give birth in June, and give birth to one baby with a gestation period of 225 days. Males fall from April to May, and they cut for 50 to 65 days after falling.


Red deer, Cervus elaphus

It is native to Europe, and in Korea, it was imported and proliferated from New Zealand between 1974 and 1976. Some were imported from Canada and later banned. Deer imports have been liberalized since 1992, and it is currently the most imported variety, accounting for about 5% of domestic breeding deer. It is a medium-sized deer, accounting for more than 90% of New Zealand deer, which have the largest number of heads. The vegetarianity of the survey is excellent in environmental stress while enjoying shrubs like deer. It is larger than a deer and smaller than an elk, and features crown-like horns.


Elk or Wapiti Cervus canadensis 

It is the largest variety among the red-green genera and was imported and proliferated from North America between 1974 and 1976. Elk accounts for about 34 percent of deer in Korea. Unlike other deer, they enjoy grasses more than shrubs. The fur color is mixed with gray and brown, and both males and females have long hairs around their necks. The head is small compared to the body, the tail is very short, the body weight is about 15 to 19kg, and the adult green is about 300kg for females and 350 to 450kg for males. The production of antlers is about 9 to 16 kilograms per head. Males fall from March to April and cut 70 to 85 days after falling.

Deer management and melting in momnyoung

Deer management and antlers

Deer horns refer to the accessory organs of the bones on the head of a stag, and are used as a tool for pecking order and as a medicine for excellence, which is considered the first hand in oriental medicine.

Deer horns are called "dragon" in Chinese characters, and this is a conference character describing the growth of grass on "ear."


Deer horns are only found in stag, and the growth rate is the fastest in the higher animal kingdom, and they start to grow in horn roots as the only organic material that is regenerated every year and go through the process of rusting container → peeling machine → rust machine → falling machine.

The cutting period of deer antlers varies from time to time, and they usually take place between May and August, and the body dragon is only once a year, from the end of May to the end of MayIt's cutting in early June.

This period is a period when ossification does not progress, and the best deer antlers can be harvested.


Body Dragon Bio is the only deer cluster in Korea that handles only deer antlers from domestic elk deer.

More than 200 domestic deer farms affiliated with the Deer Cluster of Cheyenne Bio are researching, developing, and producing products for domestic antlers selected.

Above all, deer farmers with body dragons are farmers who specialize in raising domestic deer with more than 30 years of know-how.

Those who speak low of domestic antlers say that domestic antlers are not managed, which is absurd.

In particular, BAEYONG Bio handles only deer antlers from deer cluster member farms, and manages deer by spreading exchanges with other farms and deer management education, led by HACCP-certified deer farms.

We are working hard today for safer and better domestic antlers.

Domestic Greening Story 1
Why is domestic antlers expensive?

Why is domestic antlers expensive?


The biggest difference between domestic antlers and imported antlers is that imported antlers are mostly grazed in grasslands, with only one or two types of grass consumed by deer.

On the other hand, domestic deer are consumed by mixing herbs, subjects, and deer food to collect high-quality deer antlers.

In the case of imported products, most of them are raised in large quantities to obtain meat, and deer antlers are considered as by-products because they do not eat them.

However, in the case of domestic products, the purpose of breeding is deer antler itself, and since it is intensively managed through small-scale breeding, there is inevitably a difference in price from the cost.


I know that most domestic agricultural and livestock products are safe and taste good, but when processed into food, they are often reluctant to use domestic raw materials due to problems in distribution due to higher costs and small production than imported products. The same is true of melting.

As mentioned above, domestic antlers differ from the price competition with imported antlers due to their high cost and small production.

This is the biggest reason for creating barriers with consumers who encounter domestic antlers.


Looking at the price distribution of deer antlers, it is in the order of Chinese deer antlers made in New Zealand and Russia.

Compared to imported products, the difference in cost varies by at least three times.

It is also a reality that domestic antlers are distributed for food rather than for medicinal purposes at high costs.

To overcome this, the body is taking the lead in popularizing domestic deer antlers by forming the only deer cluster in Korea.


Domestic Greening Story 2
Is domestic antlers really ineffective?

Is domestic antlers really ineffective?

It is widely known that deer antlers in cold areas are more effective.

Therefore, it is often concluded that the melting of domestic deer with four seasons is ineffective.


Usually, the quality of deer antlers is determined by the "production area" and the "species" of deer.

In terms of production area, Russian is the best, and it is known to be New Zealand and China.

Therefore, it is known that Russian deer antlers are the best, but in fact, it is difficult to find evidence that Russian deer antlers are far better than those of other mountains.

Russia is a cold country, so it is said that the organization of deer antlers is dense, but this also varies depending on the area of deer antlers.

This is because most antlers have dense tissues as they go up.

Therefore, it is also known that the most dense bone of the deer antlers is the best.

Moreover, there are many subspecies due to crossbreeding, so I don't think it has much meaning in classifying deer species.

In summary, it works depending on the production area and species? There is no difference.

For example, raising one cow in Korea and one in the United States does not change the character of the cow. 

Therefore, I think it is more important to process deer's growth period, cutting time of deer, and process deer antlers than to be obsessed with mountains and species.

Therefore, let's not make a mistake in concluding that domestic antlers are ineffective antlers.
