​Dexter Cattle

Dexters are wonderful grazing cattle with incredible personalities.  
We love all our Dexters.  They pasture with our horses, goats and livestock guardians. 
 You need approximately a half acre of grass per Dexter. 
In winter have a dry lot or sacrifice area and feed hay. 


The Livestock Conservatory states: 

Dexter Cattle are among the smallest breeds of cattle in the world. The Dexter is a dual-purpose breed that is hardy, forage‑efficient, and has excellent maternal qualities. As with other dual‑purpose breeds, the quantity of milk produced varies among strains; those strains selected for dairying produce more milk, while those that have been selected for beef produce less.
