History of Red Devons
Red Devon cattle first reached the United States in the year 1623 on the ship Charity when the pilgrims brought one bull and three heifers to their colony, making them the first purebred cattle to reach North America. They bear the nickname "Red Rubies" for their rich, red color.
Official reference from Devon Cattle Breeders' Society of England (paraphrased)
"...the breed may have been prehistoric, contributing to the Hereford and other English cattle breeds. It is one of the oldest breeds today; it's native home being southwestern England, including Devon County from which it gets its name."
