Our friends in the Devon Cattle Breeder’s Society in the UK are inviting us along with the rest of the Red Devon Cattle World to join them next year in the UK for the World Devon Congress and Tour. The dates are June 5 through June 20, 2016. There will be numerous tours of some of the best Red Devon (the British prefer the name Red Rubies) herds in the UK. Some are new herds and some are among the oldest in the world.
The Congress, to be held in the middle of the two weeks, will feature world class speakers from the agriculture community and the genetic field in the UK. There will be reports from the other Red Devon Cattle Societies and Associations throughout the rest of the world.
Added attractions to the tour are the Royal Three Counties Show and a visit to the HRH Prince of Wales (Prince Charles) Duchy Home Farm and Highgrove Gardens.
And naturally there will be great food. Of course any time you visit the UK everyone recommends you try clotted cream, but I recommend any fruit smothered with double cream.
