DLCC Balanced Genetics

We are your dependable source for South Devon and Poundmaker genetics

We don't chase trends and we never lose sight of our mission to make cattle that can perform on all fronts. We've made significant progress in making our cattle calve much easier with lower birth weights, yet increasingly improve the weaning and yearling weights. Our female base has been moderated with particular attention to udder quality and longevity.
