Crossbreeding with South Devon
A properly planned move into crossbreeding, making use of the benefits derived from hybrid vigour and the combining ability of different breeds, will increase profit per hectare for a beef enterprise. For further information visit our crossbreeding pages for valuable facts and testimonials. Also see the latest 2017 South Devon Review for many interesting articles on crossbreeding with Blonde D’Aquitaine, Brahman/Belmont Red, Bazadais and Angus/Friesian.

STOP PRESS: BOLINDA SOUTH DEVONS –
The James family would like to thank all those who supported the first stage of the Bolinda dispersal. A total clearance of females topping at $5250 to Kildare South Devons and averaging $3155. Females sold to 3 states. Solid competition on semen lots as well. Brian would be glad that this group of cows has all gone to homes that will be as passionate about them as he was.
The remaining females will be prepared for the 2nd and final stage of the dispersal, most likely in mid spring. Keep an eye on this space and our FACEBOOK page – AUSTRALIAN SOUTH DEVONS for further information.
