Category ArchiveDevon Cattle for Sale
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.
SABO ABBY is the first of our growing herd of purebred Rotokawa Devon cattle. The eldest of our 8 current Rotokawa Devons, Abby is gentle, intelligent, and remarkably easy keeping. Although she was carried by and born to our most slender Red Angus cow (in her first pregnancy!), Abby is showing her Devon genetics well. We will be harvesting embryos from Abby this summer. We look towards increasing our Montana-born Rotokawa Devons for ourselves, and other cattle ranchers seeking their easy keeping, easy fleshing, tender, 100% grassfed genetics.
ABBY is not for sale, as we are building our current herd. We will not be selling our Rotokawa embryo Devon heifers (Sabo Abby, Belle, Callie, or Dora), but will be harvesting embryos once from each of them, and might have embryos for sale if all goes well on that endeavor. ABBY’s full brother, Sabo BEN, is for sale, photos coming soon!
We have more Rotokawa ET bull calves (born May 2009) here than we will need, and will be selecting which to sell next spring, 2011. They are looking terrific at the moment, even in the dead of winter! Look for a post coming soon with photos of our 2009 crop of Rotokawa Devons!
