American Milking Devons

American Milking Devon (AMD) cattle were traditionally kept as a triple purpose breed, valued for their high butterfat milk, fine beef, and willingness to work as draft animals. As agriculture shifted to more intensive and specialized modes of production, these animals fell out of favor and were replaced with tractors and cattle breeds more suited to industrialized agriculture. For a more comprehensive look at AMD history, please visit the American Milking Devon Cattle Association.

Bells Bend Farms is excited about utilizing our AMDs in their traditional roles. While currently kept for beef, we hope to begin milking a few of our exceptional cows.  It's our hope that we can play a small role in preserving the valuable AMD genetics, while providing our customers with exceptional grassfed beef and dairy products.
