Index prepared by Michael Steer

This index was produced from a digital copy of the book, which can be downloaded from: https://books.google.com/ Google, in partnership with a number of public libraries has sought to make more widely accessible, old, hard-to-get books on which copyright has expired. Devon Cattle have long been favoured for their hardy foraging ability in uncertain grass conditions; their rich milking ability favoured the sustenance of both calf and the farming family, and their docility and strength adapted them for use as oxen. The Devon was the all-around cow, providing milk, meat and muscle. Records for Devons as a pure breed began when John T. Davy published the first volume of this annual series in 1851. Colonel Davy's family had been breeding pure Devons for at least 150 years prior to that. Queen Victoria had a herd of Devons and won first prize at Smithfield in 1897. The Herd Book is intended to be "the standard reference on the subject with which it treats". The index is presented in two parts; (a) the subscriber's list, and (b) the surname index. The list of subscribers provides the names and addresses of Devons cattle breeders from throughout Great Britain and the United States. Since the Herd Book is basically an alphabetic catalogue of bovine names and pedigrees, each associated with their owner or breeder, only the number of the first page is given, on which that breeder/owner's name appears.
