Spring gives way to warm days as the summer season nears, and we begin to see deer fawns, one of the most appealing sights in nature. The young deer's life of growing into a mature deer begins to unfold, it is growing rapidly.
The doe guides the newborn to specific feeding areas, and of course, the fawn quickly learns where the nutrients are. Besides periodically nursing from its mother, the deer fawn is able to forage on its own within just a few weeks after birth. Yet it is still dependent on its mother's milk which has twice the protein and energy per unit volume as cow's milk, is high in fat and vitamins, and possesses colostrum, which is basically an antibiotic to resist disease.
