Project Description

Harvey

“HARVEY” has been one of the New Zealand deer industry’s leading sires. His extraordinarily heavy antler structure has left its mark on both velvet and trophy genetics now being used in New Zealand. In his prime “Harvey” grew the heaviest velvet for age for any New Zealand Red Stag at ages 6, 7 and 9 years. In 1999 “Harvey” was the Supreme Champion of the National Velvet Competition, with a head weighing 11.59kg @ 9 years. Even now this is still the heaviest red head to ever win the National Velvet Competition. A grandson of “Harvey”, “Austin”, has now also won the National Velvet Competition with a head of 10.86kg S.A.V. at only 6 years of age. A son of “Harvey”, “Kane” was second in the National Velvet Competition Hard Antler section at only 5 years of age, with an S.C.I. score of 544. “Harvey” died at 17 years, he was truly one of our “Industry Greats” HARVEY PERFORMANCE
