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.

Can docile Devons deal with Predators??

This was photographed at 1pm in the middle of the hayfield where our Devon herd was feeding. The deer was killed the previous night by coyotes, cleaned up by 10 bald eagles and numerous magpies, ravens, etc

 

Devons as small as this first calf heifer, with a pudgy heifer calf due to her high butterfat milk, have no trouble protecting their offspring from our various predators. Docile to all humans, great mothers! This calf has CREAM on her muzzle at the end of nursing, not milk!

Devons have adapted beautifully to the high altitude, predator filled dry land pastures of the high mountain West.
