South Devon Cattle – The Natural Breed
As many of our visitors and friends know we aspire to a very low impact model in our grass fed grass finished beef production. We only feed our South Devon cattle grass and we try to keep them outside year round. This morning I was feeding Billy-Bob’s family out in our main overwintering field and it struck me how good they looked.

These girls have been maintained on a diet of winter grass and a bale of silage every other day throughout the winter. They are all pregnant and coming on very nicely. We are keeping making every effort to stay quiet around them, between the wind, cold and rain of the last few weeks and their advanced pregnant condition they have been getting moody on occasion. However this Easter weekend with its fantastic weather has brought out the best in them and I wanted to share this picture with all of you.
