Sabo Ranch is pleased to offer semen from our two registered Rotokawa Devon bulls, SABO EBAN and his full brother SABO DANIEL. We have used these two bulls for three years in our own herd of fullblood Devon cows, and Red and Black Angus cows. We love his offspring! Gentle, deep bodied, strong.
Great for adult cows, the hybrid calves will be larger, and along with the super-feed-efficiency of the Devon influence on those hybrid calves, might make for larger calves that you would like for heifers. We average 72-75 lbs birthweight on composite calves from these two bulls on Angus cows, and we are careful to underfeed our cows in the last trimester of their pregnancies. We save on feed costs, and have only pulled 3 out of 180 calves(2 breech).
Devon composite calves are extremely strong. We have never assisted a Devon composite calf to nurse for the first time.
300 day Weaning weight on Devon/Angus composite calves: Steers, 644 lbs, Heifers 633 lbs. Purebred Devon heifers, 570 lbs.
