We never stop looking after Dyrham...
Although the deer are able to look after themselves through much of the year, our team of rangers helps them survive the coldest months by supplementing their natural grazing.
They are fed special 'sheep nuts' - the 200-strong herd consumes a large sack of these every day. When there is snow on the ground and grass is therefore unavailable, feeding is increased to twice a day, with the addition of hay.
