Fellow Devon Enthusiasts,

It is my pleasure to announce that consignment applications are now being accepted for the 2013 National Devon Show. The 2013 Show will be held in conjunction with the 2013 annual meeting to be held September 26th-28th at beautiful Lake Junaluska near Canton, N.C. This year’s event looks to be a great one with the merger of the ADCA and NADA being finalized and Devon breeders from all across the USA uniting to work together on the advancement of the Devon breed.

The National Devon Show is a little different than most 4H, FFA or fair type shows that you may be familiar with in that our animals do not have to be halter broke and we most certainly don’t want them “fed up” for show. Our judge will be awarding the animals as if he was picking them straight out of the pasture for his own grass fed herd.

This year, some animals that are entered into the Show will be offered for sale by private treaty by Show consignors. The Show provides an excellent marketing opportunity for your farm and your animals. Red Devon USA will charge a 5% sale commission on any animal shown that transfers ownership within 60 days of the Show. See the Entry Form for details about how to designate Show animals for sale.

It is my sincerest hope that we have consignments this year from farms that have not participated in the past competing against perennial consignors such as the Trantham’s, Lenoir’s Creek Farm and the Engh’s at Lakota Ranch. The National Show is a wonderful promotional event for participating farms that is designed for fun, friendly competition, education and just another great reason to attend the annual meeting in North Carolina.

To enter, go to either the NADA or ADCA website, look over the show classes and if you have an animal that you think measures up, simply print off the entry form and fill it out. Be sure to read the conditions of show and the health requirements of North Carolina and mail the forms to the address at the bottom of the entry form. Note that by entering, you are signing an affidavit attesting that you have not “fed up” your animals on anything other than natural pasture and hay. If you have any questions, email me at

More information about Annual Meeting accommodations and the Show location will be posted soon.

Sincerely,

Jacob Owens, Show Committee
