American Milking Devons are a truly triple-purpose heritage breed of cattle that is listed as
Critical by the American Livestock Breed Conservancy. Cows average from 800 to 1100 pounds
and produce around 4 gallons of 5 to 5.5% butterfat milk per day. They come in all shades of red
with black-tipped, white horns.
We have found Lily to be quite intelligent, pretty spunky, and quite willful. This adds up to a
heifer that can be a bit of a handful at times, but also a rewarding friend. We are novices starting
with cattle and have no regrets starting with this wonderful breed.

Success! on our second try with AI this time around. We had Bill Jones, the local AI specialist,
visit Lily on 10/23/2011 and again on 11/14/11, using semen from registered bull Wild Asparagus
Farm Axel #10352:
Lily was confirmed pregnant via ultrasound by our vet, Terry McKenzie!
She is carrying a single and her expected due date is 8/20/2012.
We're hoping that chance plays in our favor and brings us a heifer calf this year. we will likely
use the other bull's semen, Meadow Brook Glory's Herk #10337, later this year when we have Lily
bred for next season. We acquired enough straws to preform two inseminations per breeding for
three years. Since we were successful on our first try, we may be able to breed Lily more times
using this initial shipment of straws.
Lily's bull calf, Asterion, is registered and available for anyone looking for a fine AMD bull or for
