About DEEResearch
DEEResearch is a joint venture between the deer industry and AgResearch with representation from all deer industry sectors and all deer research providers. We undertake industry-good research to support the profitable and sustainable development of the New Zealand deer industry.

DEEResearch was established in 2001 to better co-ordinate the deer research being undertaken by various organisations in the New Zealand deer industry and to provide an efficient mechanism to prioritise, undertake and manage the results of research for the benefit of the New Zealand deer industry.

Industry good research relating to velvet antler is not funded by DEEResearch. This is work undertaken by Velvet Antler Research New Zealand Ltd (VARNZ)

DEEResearch is funded by industry levies collected by Deer Industry New Zealand and by the Foundation for Research Science and Technology through AgResearch.

The Board of DEEResearch comprises an independent Chairman, 2 nominees of AgResearch, 1 nominee of each of Deer Industry New Zealand and the Deer Farmers' Association, a nominee to represent deer product processing/exporting companies and a nominee to university researchers.
