About the Society

The South Devon is a truly versatile modern native beef breed firmly established across the UK.  Its outstanding performance as repeatedly testified by AHDB’s native breed rankings should not be underestimated by today’s livestock producer.  The breed’s performance for growth, forage utilisation, carcase quality, and maternal attributes mean this a breed for both pedigree and commercial beef who want to farm sustainably and profitably. The South Devon Society promotes and supports the interests of the South Devon breed of beef cattle and is a registered charity.

As a member organisation of South Devon breeders and livestock enthusiasts, its primary objective is to maintain, develop and protect the integrity of South Devon pedigree status.  It also actively promotes the commercial strengths of the breed and the activities of its members.
