In 1623 the first Milking Devon were brought to Massachusetts from North Devonshire, England, where they were valued for their production of both high quality beef and the rich milk used in Devonshire cream. Their agility when working on hilly, rocky terrain contributed to their popularity in the New England colonies. But with the market for dual-purpose cattle dwindling in the mid-1900s, the Milking Devon cattle mostly disappeared. A few select traditional breeders continued multi-purpose selection, which resulted in a new breed renamed the American Milking Devon, which is a medium-sized, red-hued breed with black-tipped white horns. This historical, efficient, hardy, multi-purpose breed is listed as critically endangered by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy.
