Devlan Limousins is a successful Limousin stud that was established in 1992 and has grown to an impressive breeding herd of approximately 600 stud animals today. John & Tracy Devonport are the proud owners of this beautiful herd.
The farm is situated on the beautiful banks of the Vaal Dam and comprises 6 adjoining farms totaling 1156 hectares with 22 kilometres of waterfront. We have an average rainfall of 600mm a year. The cattle graze on Sourveld and we experience very harsh and cold winters. It is a very tough environment with high tick populations, gallsickness and redwater. It is a relatively drought-resistant farm as when the water level drops, the farm increases in capacity. The grazing below the high water mark is fertilized naturally and the cattle thrive on this exceptional pasture. The cattle are raised on the veld under high grazing pressures with minimal feeding. An adaptable highly efficient and rugged breed, the Limousins produce superior grass fed beef.
Devlan is privileged to have a dedicated team of hard-working and loyal staff who have helped us get where we are today. They are led by Alfred Mahlasela (Farm Manager), Oupa Nhlapo (Cattle Manager) and Leon du Toit (Show String Manager.) We also enjoy the assistance of Chris Marais who competently assists with selection of animals and training of staff. His attention to detail and practical experience are a great asset to Devlan. Sabine Botha, a graduate in Animal Sciences and Genetics from “Tukkies”, does a great job updating our computer records, administration and internet site. Dr. Louis van Jaarsveld advises us on our animal health and has looked after our herd diligently since 1989.
