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

Considering Red Devon cattle for your farm? Want to learn from the best Red Devon breeders and farmers in the country? Take a look at some of the resources we have available to help you learn more about this extraordinary breed and the people who are carrying on the tradition.
