Pedigree South Devon Cattle


The Hawkley herd of pedigree South Devons was founded in 1989. Foundation stock came mainly from Stretchford, Coombe Farm and Roskymer females.

The purchase of Highgate Radical 4 in 1994 sired the calves which helped us win the National Herd Competition in 1997, and the Cecil Harvey Shield for best herd of cows.

Semen from Radical was collected by the Leachman Cattle Company in the USA , on the strength of the quality of his calves.

The next influential sire was Z Cilgwrrwg Kaiser (polled), who was Best Stock Bull in the 2004 National Herd Competition.

He has left us with lovely females, some of which are polled.
