Why Devon

The Devon’s natural characteristics help producers keep their overhead low and their inputs to a minimum. Due to its genetic purity, the Devon is a perfect “type” of animal for grass farming—its breed remains the same as it was before anyone had ever heard of a grain finishing feedlot.

Join Red Devon USA

Join our growing community of US-based farmers and breeders devoted to preserving Red Devon cattle. Our members have a unique opportunity to learn & share best practices for grass-fed beef production, thus improving their bottom line and the sustainability of their farms.

Learning Resources
