American Milking Devon Cattle were the first breed of cattle brought to the United States. Originally from Devon England and called North Devons, the cattle were renamed ‘American Milking Devon Cattle’ by the Association that registers them in the USA. Once numbering in the thousands, these cattle tri-purpose were used for meat, milk and oxen. They were the cattle that broke the New England forests, uprooted rocks clearing the way for farms, pulled plows, built roads, hauled wagons, provided food for the settlers and even hauled the cannons during the Revolutionary War. Once oxen were replaced by tractors, and America switched to factory-style, high-production, mono-culture farming, the high-quality butterfat of a Devon’s milk was replaced by the high-production volume of a Holsteins bag and the prized ruby red Devon meat that marbles and flavors so well solely on grass was replaced by Herefords and Angus that could be more cheaply produced by feeding them only corn and grains. As a result, Devon Cattle became rare and endangered. Today, Devon Point Farm is dedicated to preserving and promoting Devon Cattle and hosts one of the largest herds in the country.
