Devon Cattle for Sale &Uncategorized saboranch on 28 Mar 2016

Australian Devon semen to be used at Sabo Ranch, summer 2016

We are excited to announce that after more than a year of waiting in the U.S., and the hard work of Australian Red Devon breeders Vic Edwards (VixDevons) and Alison Heap (Gowan Ross Devons), that the semen of Vix Jurassic J76(P) and Gowan Ross Gentleman G82(P) has arrived in the U. S.

Udders and Feet, and “Do-ability” in adverse conditions- that’s what we sought when we visited VixDevons and Gowan Ross!  Here’s a photo of Jurassic’s dam- just plain a beautiful working animal.

We will breed many of our current herd of Devon cattle to those bulls this year, and we can’t wait to see these Australian calves on the ground, and see how these award winning Devon genetics do in the wide dry fields of Montana.

We thank Vic and Alison for their generosity in hosting us at their Devon cattle station in January 2015, for opening doors to other Devon stations in their region, and for all the hard work and rigorous selection process that has brought the genetics from their award winning herds here to the U.S. to further enrich the Devon breed which we all love so well.

More Beef, More Grass, Lower Greenhouse Gases?

We have often heard that raising beef increases planetary methane from cattle flatulence.

Devon/Red Angus yearling heifers for SALE.  Deep bodied, gentle, gourmet quality beef producers!

HOWEVER, more GRASS FED beef often means that grasslands are improved for increased beef production. And, an improved grassland means a pasture that is dense with forage plants.

That means more oxygen, less carbon dioxide, and cleaner air!
Also, many grasslands are too arid, too steep, or just too rugged for farm machinery- so grass-fed beef is often able to be raised on ground that is not suitable for conventional motorized agriculture.

From the steppes of Mongolia and Kazakhstan, to the Serengeti plains of Africa, to the arid grasslands of the American West, GRASS grows BEEF.
