Imported 1623 into North America for the Plymouth Colony as a triple-purpose breed, American Milking Devons are still prized and regularly used as draft animals (“oxen”). They are hardy and well adapted to low-input management schemes and harsh environments. Its well-documented history makes this breed a favored exhibition animal at historic sites such as Mount Vernon and Williamsburg. The American Milking Devon breed needs additional stewards! Please inquire if you are interested in ox training/driving, raising multi-purpose cattle, or simply want a gentle family cow.
