About Sportsmanship, or not
We have decided to skip the State Fair of Virginia this year.
Rockbridge Fair provides a superior place and group to promote Milking Devons and other heritage breeds.
We just aren't competive enough.
The show ring doesn't reflect an animal's suitability for thriving in a homestead economy.
When some owners use show ring wins to promote their individual sales rather than promoting the breed this farm fairy stops enabling.
So Where Do YOU Start?
Training working steers?
Finding a milk cow?
Establishing a starter herd?
