We love our Dexters!
Originally from Ireland, these cows are gentle, do very well on our pasture (and the lawn sometimes) and are generally a pleasure to have around. The cows calve with ease, and it's so much fun to wake up to a baby nursing in the field or the barn without any need to call the vet or pull a calf.
Some fun facts about Dexters.
* Dexter Cattle are the smallest purebred cattle breed in the world.
* Dexter Cattle are naturally horned or polled, and although many owners choose to de-horn we do not, as our cows use their horns very well as protection against predators.
* Dexter cows can continue to calve into their 20's.
* Dexter Cattle eat about half as much as larger breeds of cattle.
*Dexter Cattle do very well on straight pasture in the summer and straight hay in the winter. None of our cattle are grain fed. - It's only grass around here.
