“Through our sponsorship of programs such as ConQuest 200, we’ve been about to tell important stories and deliver information to millions of television viewers and online users,” said Shawn Schafer, executive director of NADeFA. “There is still too much fear-mongering going on about CWD, and we cannot rely on mainstream media outlets to provide true and unbiased information. NADeFA has always taken the led the industry in providing information to the public, and we’ll continue to do so directly as an organization as well as indirectly by sponsoring programs such as ConQuest 200.”

ConQuest 200 is a program based on the unscripted life of a deer farming family at the ConQuest Deer Farm. The show brings viewers inside the farm gates so they can learn about the process as well as the men and women in the industry and the daily challeges they face.

ConQuest 200 TV airs on the Sportsman Channel, Saturdays at 7 a.m., Sundays at 5 p.m. and Tuesdays at 5 a.m.
