We produce South Devon bulls and heifers for sale as breeding stock. The aim of the herd has always been to build on the excellent natural qualities of the South Devon (notably fast growth, large mature size, maternal traits with plenty of milk, docility, ability to convert grass, and good beef conformation with marbling) to produce superior beef animals.
To this end performance is fully recorded and used for selection in the breeding programme. At the same time welfare is a priority - the herd is grass-fed and over-wintered indoors on mainly silage.
