- ... Interspecies hybrids provide unique opportunities for fundamental genetic analyses and for genetic improvement of farmed deer. We have bred F1 hybrids by artificial insemination of red deer hinds (Cervus elaphus) with semen from Pere David's deer (Elaphurus davidianus). The male and female F1 Pere David deer X red deer hybrids were fertile and in matings with red deer have produced over 300 viable ...
