  • Champson Defender calves arrive on the ground in New Zealand.

    This spring has seen the first crop of Champson Defender calves arrive on the ground in New Zealand.  The 10 calves, 5 bull and 5 heifers were all born unaided on 3 different farms.  First impressions are very favourable, the calves exhibit strength, ooze breed character, and appear to have the potential to be very efficient beef producers. 

    It is interesting to note Defender's sireline of 'Whitefield Mighty Progress', also produced both the champion and top priced bull, as well as champion female from the Coxwell herd, at the UK Devon Cattle Breeders 2018 Autumn Show and Sale.

    For those who are curious to know more about Defender, you will find much more information on the website;

    STOP PRESS 150 straws of Defender has just been purchased for export to America from the UK.

  • Dairy Farmer October 2018;   Red Devons ideal
      -  By Dirk Sieling, Dairy Farmer October 2018

    The Red Devon has all the attributes to make a significant contribution to the NZ meat industry but it is important that only quality purebred bulls are used. That is where buying from association members can provide confidence for buyers. All registered bulls are purebred.
