We so appreciate all the years of experience that Ken McDowall, the original Rotokawa Devon breeder, put into developing this premier group of Devons. Most exciting, we are watching how Devons can adapt to the rough weather and dry pastures of the Rocky Mountain West.

Article after article, rancher after rancher these days, is looking for better gain in their cattle on fewer and fewer inputs.
As fuel costs rise, and hay, and gasoline to run a vehicle to check on cattle in the fields, we all need to find the solution for minimum input and maximum gain.
Devons can be the answer! ”…recent studies at Oregon State University evaluated the impacts of temperament on gain performance, reproduction and health parameters…” and found that cattle with poor temperament negatively affected all the above parameters.

From Franny’s new owner, who has renamed Franny “Daisy”, on the 1st 24 hours of Franny/Daisy’s new life on a new farm:
So Daisy got in her head that the grass was greener on the other side of the fence and the best way to get there would be to get on her knees like a commando and go under the panel. We put her back in and rearranged the fence and whoop up comes the fence again and under goes Daisy. My horse is in the pen next to the cows by herself and it is fenced with the “no-step through” type wire. My horse has run with cows before and we very nervously moved Daisy in with her. A little disconcerting because there really wasn’t much opportunity for introduction. I told my husband to tie Daisy to the fence for a little but he misunderstood and for some crazy reason thought I meant to tie her inside the pen. He couldn’t hear me over the wicked wind and I was busy keeping the angus in their pen until he could help me move the panels back into position so I yelled to him to just let her loose and be prepared. I prayed. No problem though. A moment later horse and cow were sharing a meal together.

Riley Sabo, our oldest son and fastest milker, started teaching new Jersey/Rotokawa Devon heifer SABO ISABELL more about milking today. Although Isabell was quite protective of her calf at first, her mother SABO LILA, just across the fence, and Riley helped her to calm down and settle into new hands (owner Jenny Sabo has been milking her since little Isra was born March 20, 2012).
Isabell is SOLD, and will be traveling to the ranch of Angie and Jim Manring in mid June. Like the other Jerseys we sell, she will arrive at the Manrings well trained, gentle, and bred back to the bull of their choice (in this case, our new A2/A2 Jersey bull Holt Creek Procyon). 406-685-3248, firstname.lastname@example.org
