Devon Cattle for Sale saboranch on 26 Jun 2016
July 1 we turn in our Devon bulls. We’re trying some different approaches this year.
1). ARTIFICIAL INSEMINATION with GOWAN ROSS GENTLEMAN and VIXDEVONS JURASSIC, two top quality Devon bulls from Australia. We are excited to start our breeding program with these incredible bulls from two award winning Devon herds who have been selecting for both maternal traits of longevity udders, feet, and mothering, and commercial traits for gourmet Devon beef. The best of both worlds!
2). DEVON EMBRYOS into 14 of our commercial cows, with Devon bulls following for them and the remainder of our commercial cows for strong Devon influenced calves for 2017. Embryos are sired by Tapuwae 635 and Te Maewa OBAN, both New Zealand bulls selected for excellent udders, mothering, and easy weight gain.

Tipping Point –
As we enjoy the green grass, the strong Devon and commercial calves, and start to plan for our 2016 breeding season, we agree with Kit Pharo’s words, here. Our breeding choices in the next 3 weeks affect our lives for years to come. What an exciting time!
“It is becoming more and more evident that we are entering a new era in beef production. We are at a major tipping point. What has worked so well for the last 50 years will NOT work for the next 50 years. This excites me! It will provide some with an opportunity to increase profitability – even with much lower calf prices. Although all cow-calf producers have the same opportunity to achieve long-term success, most won’t change a thing until they are forced to. Please remember… your success, or lack thereof, will be a matter of choice – NOT luck! It will be up to YOU!” Kit Pharo
