    Background: Workers on a deer farm in the north-east region of the People's Republic of China have found a way of greatly increasing the output and quality of antlers. Faced with the deteriorating health of the animals living their lives out in enclosures, the workers decided to try and improve the deer's lot. Now, the animals roam freely around the surrounding hills, grazing like sheep and responding to calls for feeding at regular times. The banging of gongs and abundant supplies of bean-cakes tamed the wild deer. Their health improved, and so did the quality of their antlers. This film, from Peking television, shows the results of the bean-cake campaign -- it includes some beautiful scenes of the dear in full flight, and is accompanied by a good sound track.
