Milking Devons

 

Milking Devons originally came to New England from Devonshire, England in the early 17th century.  This beautiful breed was brought to this country due to their hardiness and multiple uses and because of these same traits, naturally, they were also one of the oxen breeds the pioneers drove West.  You can read more about these wonderful animals at the Milking Devon Association Website:  https://www.milkingdevons.org/hist.html

Here at Golden Crest Farm our Devon’s are pastured in the summer months and hay fed in the winter months.  Grass feed beef has been shown to have lower amounts of Omega 6’s and higher amounts of Omega 3’s.  The studies linked here, performed at the University of Utah on the Devon meat and milk conclude Omega 6 to Omega 3 ratio in the Devon Meat Fat is about 1/3 of the average American meat:  https://www.milkingdevons.org/documents/milk002.pdf
