A Little About Our Red Devons
Red Devon Bulls, Cows and Heifers are known for their heritage and the quality of the meat that they can produce as grass fed beef. As a breed, Red Devon was originally developed in Devonshire, England in both the valleys and along the rolling hills. In the 17th century that were brought over to America.
At Cove Creek Farm we continue to raise our Red Devons in a natural, mountainous grass-fed environment similar to their original breeding environment. Continuing with the grass finished tradition, we select Red Devons that mature on grass in two years.
Cove Creek Farm make our Red Devon cattle available to other Red Devon breeders for use on their farm. We regularly cull out cattle that do not meet our standards for docility or optimal grass feeding and finishing. The bulls and heifers that we breed perform well in a variety of conditions, are very docile, beautiful and easy to work.
Our Red Devon exhibit excellent marbling for grass fed, grass finished beef. Our Red Devons regularly mature out between 1000 and 1100 pounds before they are slaughtered. Our goal is to raise cattle who hit these numbers in two years.
At Cove Creek Farm our cattle are completely grass fed and grass finished. Our cattle consume absolutely no GMO’s, animal by-products or any type of hormones. Our Red Devon are moved daily in a rotational grazing system that we will be pleased to teach you about as you pursue your own farming ventures.

Bred Heifers and Cows
When buying a starter herd, your best bang for your buck is buying bred heifers and cows. Although bred livestock are more expensive initially, you end up with two head of cattle. Bred heifers have never had a calf before and there is a little more risk involved because of some of the unknowns in breeding. We cull hard to eliminate cattle that don’t have good mothering ability and live birth rates to help minimize the risk. Bred cows are a little more expensive but they have proven that they have the ability to calf unassisted.
