Monte Pahu Red Devon Stud

Welcome to Monte Pahu Red Devons Stud

Red Devon cattle are the perfect match for our farm topography, our climate and our lifestyle.  

Their ability to gain and retain condition whilst foraging on the hills, and being such gentle animals makes them a great asset to our farm.

We have selected the cows who perform the best here, and use AI extensively to continuously improve our herd.

Our main focus is quality.

We aim to breed high quality Red Devon cattle that are true to type for the breed, with excellent temperament and conformation.  

We keep only those females who thrive on our hills, remaining in top condition year round, whilst rearing a great calf every year.

All our animals are weighed at birth and performance recorded throughout their growth to give accurate Estimated Breeding Values available on Breedplan.  

Artificial Insemination is used to ensure we have the best worldwide genetics contributing to our herd. We select for temperament, conformation, and high marbling/fat scores for exceptionally tasty beef.
