We are members of the American Dexter Cattle Association and raise healthy Dexters for breeding and meat production.
Dexters originated in southern Ireland, where they were bred by small landholders and roamed about the shelter-less, mountainous districts in an almost wild state. They were introduced to the U.S. when more than 200 Dexters were imported to this country between 1905 and 1915. In recent years, there has been a worldwide surge of interest in Dexter cattle—and that’s no surprise.
These remarkable cattle thrive in hot as well as cold climates and do well outdoors year-round, needing only a windbreak, shelter and fresh water. Their fertility is high, and calves typically are dropped in the field without difficulty. Their docile temperament and small size contribute to a more manageable cow—making them an excellent choice for cattle enthusiasts of all ages. They’re triple purpose, useful for beef, dairy and oxen. (Source: http://www.dextercattle.org/pdf/ADCA%20Brochure.pdf)
