Devlan Depth 06123 was the National Gold Cup winner at the Alfa show in Parys in 2016.  She also “stole the show” and won the Interbreed Gold Cups at the Royal, Bloemfontein and Lichtenburg shows in 2016. In 2015 she won the Interbreed Gold Cup at Royal Show and was the runner-up in Vryburg.

She is an amazing, feminine cow with a beautiful udder, incredible depth, conformation and “spring-of-rib”. Her hind-quarter is exceptionally well fleshed with width and length of muscle.

Whenever she walked into the ring, she would dominate with her regal presence and walking ability!

Bred from a Hautcliff Aristocrat line on the sire side, and on the dam side from Dauphin Jacre Gigolo and Devlan Frank 9613. She also displays amazing EBVs. She has 8 progeny, with an inter-calving period of 392 days.

We recently flushed her and she produced and extraordinary 26 Grade A embryos with the well-known Hitman.

A true “Golden Lady”!
