Ever since she started breeding Devons in 1994, Grania has been winning accolades and awards for her stunning cattle. There are too many to list them all here, so we've picked out a few to give you an idea of just how successful our cattle have been. We hope it's OK to boast a little bit, since it was actually the cattle who did all the hard work!

This is Colleton Marion 27th - she was highly decorated in 2015, winning Breed Champion at the prestigious Royal Bath & West show. She was also Female Champion at the Devon County Show:

It's always fun to watch the cattle judging at shows, usually all the farmers get dressed up and the cattle look very smart! :)
