​Dexter Cattle

Raising Dexter Cattle is our passion and focus!

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.

cow for conservation grazing. "  

Dexters Available

2023 we are expecting quite a few calves. All will be registered with American Dexter Cattle Associaton and already DNA tested and listed on Legacy Dexter Cattle Registry.   All our calves eat a little cattle pellets daily with hay and grass. All have been raised with goats, guardian dogs and horses.  They are used to tractor, and ATV around them.  All beautiful, curious, come running when called and easy going.  All used to being in corral and walking through cattle chute and head gate.  If you want to halter train them it isn't hard due to their docile nature.  

If you haven't had a chance to meet Dexter cattle in person I highly recommend it. You will fall in love with this breed like we have. ❤️😊

Currently we have 1 Red Bull Calf available for breeding  NO LONGER AVAILABLE
