FarmHer host Marji Guyler Alaniz travels to Okeechobee, Florida to meet a FarmHer with a love for learning and adoration for animals. Dr. Laurie Cook raises whitetail deer for breeders and wildlife preserves.
“I had sold my veterinary practice and we ran into some deer hunters at an outdoor expo. I was talking to them and I said, ‘What do you do?’ They said, ‘We raise whitetail deer.’ And I said, ‘To do what?’” Dr. Laurie Cook joked.
FarmHer goes behind the scenes of this whitetail paradise to see how the Cook’s designed their ranch to have the best and safest conditions for these animals. Watch as Laurie gets these timid animals to feed right out of her hand and see how she uses her knowledge as a veterinarian to care for them day in and day out.
