Our Red Devons are true to type; we place great emphasis on breeding quality cattle and offer for purchase those animals we would want to buy ourselves.


Our interest is to breed real Red Devons, utilising A.I. to access the genetics of the bulls from the pure original lines. We have no interest in crossbred animals composed of Saler for size, or Angus for the polled gene in our main herd. We do stock some polled animals for that market.

We breed the real Red Devon, for our pleasure, and to do with as you wish.


Not all red cattle are Devons, and not all Devons are like our Devons.

Our focus is quality and performance.

How do we know our calves can grow into melt in the mouth, tender beef?


Using ultrasound we can view the carcass quality of our breeding stock, and use the breedplan computer program to predict quality offspring.


Traits such as high eye muscle area (the eye fillet) are of value for prime steak cuts.

Rib fat and rump fat measurements are carcass quality markers and of course the intramuscular fat percentage measurement is a predictor of tenderness and marbling.


All calves offered this spring have higher than breed average predicted carcass quality markers including intramuscular fat.
