Red Ruby Devon - About the Breed
The Ruby Devon breed has a long history with some authorities believing it to be one of the oldest beef breeds in existence today. Red Ruby's have been recorded in a herd book since 1850 with the society being formed in 1884.
The Ruby's are noted for their ability to thrive off grass whether in the wind and driving rain on top of Exmoor or the heat and arid conditions of Australia and anything in between.
In this country they are as popular as ever with a proven ability to meet the needs of environmental schemes and to be commercially viable for food production
The devon or devon cross cow is a superb mother with plentiful milk, ease of handling and plenty of width in the hips for calving.
The Devon breed is stepping up to the economical challenges and once again being recognised as a terminal sire, producing excellent temperament, ease of calving, high growth rates from forage and early maturity with excellent marbling of carcass.
