The Society

The DCBS is a registered charity and company limited by guarantee.  It is the breed society for Red Ruby Devon Cattle and was established in 1884 to promote and maintain the purity of the Red Ruby Devon breed.  It also works to promote the Davy Herd Book which was first published in 1851.

Today the chief functions of the DCBS are:

  • Acting as a first point of contact

  • Administering pedigree registrations, transfers, new members and subscriptions

  • Publication of the annual Davy Herd Book

  • Marketing the breed at all major shows and events

  • Communicating to members

  • Organising the society’s social calendar

For details of membership, fee scales and other information, please contact Catherine Broomfield, the Secretary.
