History of the Devon

History on the Red Devon dates back to 55 B.C. Devon cattle have become in high demand due to their superb performance on grass to produce top quality beef.

Devons are recognized world wide for producing some of the finest beef off pasture alone. Devon cattle did not take part in the feedlot madness that has had a stranglehold on the American beef industry since WWII. This kept the breed firmly in the hands of Devon breeders who insures the integrity of the breed’s genetics. No breed has a purer genetic base than the Devon.

Devon have the thickest hides of any cattle in the world. That means that the Devon cattle have better resistance to external parasites and tolerate weather changes and extremes of temperature.

Devon’ historically close relationship with man insures that they are first, and always, docile.

AJ Oneil. a fourth-generation meat cutter/butcher and breeder of Red Devons, became interested in Devon cattle because he noticed qualities in the grass fed Devon that he did not see in the grass finished animals from other breeds that came through his family’s meat shop. Simply put, he handles beef and is a butcher for a living, He regularly works together with other Devon enthusiasts, actively telling the world how incredible Red Devon beef is, especially when produced on grass.

Grass Fed Advantages

Grass-fed beef, as the name implies, comes from cows that eat mostly grass. Grain-fed cows eat a diet supplemented with soy and corn and other additives. Grain-fed cows can also be given antibiotics and growth hormones to fatten them up more quickly.

Grass finished beef is beef from cows that have only ever eaten grass. For conventionally raised beef cows, the finishing period is when they are fed mostly grain, because calorie-dense grain is good at putting on fat. So the term grass finished beef reaffirms that the cow only ate grass, even during the critical finishing period. Beef from cows that have lived their whole lives outside, eating nothing but grass, is absolutely delicious, with a depth and complexity of flavor that grain fed beef can’t match. It is also healthier for the land, the farmers, and the people who eat it.

Grass finished beef may be a little more costly to raise, however it has a richer flavor and more robust nutrient profile when compared to conventional beef. WEBMD lists some additional health benefits of Grass Finished Beef:

  • Grass-fed beef has significantly lower levels of saturated fat compared to grain-fed beef. In fact, the fat content of grass-fed beef can be compared to skinless chicken. Replacing saturated fat in grain-fed beef with the unsaturated fat in grass-fed beef has been proven to reduce your risk of heart diseases.
  • Lean meat, such as grass-fed beef, has been shown to actually have a positive effect on cholesterol levels.
  • Studies have found that grass-fed beef contains two to six times more Omega-3 fatty acids than feed-lot beef. Omega-3 fatty acids have been found to help prevent and treat many diseases including, heart disease, stroke, autoimmune responses such as lupus, eczema, and rheumatoid arthritis, and a number of other conditions.
  • Studies have also found that grass-fed beef contains more antioxidants than grain-fed beef. Antioxidants help prevent cell damage that can lead to serious diseases such as cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Building and Maintaining Muscle Mass– Beef contains iron and every amino acid your body needs to make a complete protein building block. As such, it’s a source of high-quality protein. The protein from grass-fed beef can help prevent sarcopenia — a loss of muscle mass that develops from a deficiency in protein over time.
  • Beef contains high amounts of iron.
  • Generally, grass fed beef is considered to be a healthier option than grain-fed beef. Pound for pound, it has less total fat, and therefore less calories.
  • The nutritional content of that fat is also different. For example, grass fed beef has as much as five times the amount of omega-3 fatty acids as regular grain fed beef.
