Welcome to Davelle South Devons
Why South Devons?
Over the years of selling South Devon cattle either pure or for cross breeding, there's significant evidence to show any amount of South Devon content will increase profitability.
Why Davelle South Devons?
We pride ourselves in providing cattle to meet the beef industry!
We use the tools available to produce a beef animal that can be used in pure herds or cross breeding operations to add to the profit.
Our profit drivers are - low birth weights, good growth and excellent carcass
See our objectives below.
Some quotes -
“South Devon cattle are an English breed whose traits compliment both English and Continental cattle breeds. South Devon cattle are well-known for their maternal longevity and docility. Profit driven cow/calf operations that wanted to add high levels of heterosis, fertility, low feed intake, and high weaning weights found that South Devons delivered as promised. In the feedlot, heterosis, lower feed intake, and superior carcass merit, especially marbling and tenderness, are compliments of the South Devon breed.” Dave Nichols USA
“The South Devon breed has emerged as the dominant British breed alternative to Angus. South Devon breed is more than competitive on $Profit. Much of this is based on their unique combination of heavy muscling with marbling levels comparable to Angus. In addition, substantial evidence now suggests that the breed excels on feed efficiency”.
