Dexter Cattle: Heritage Livestock Breeds

Irish native Dexter cows are best raised as a family cow instead of part of a large herd, and breeders should also be aware of “dwarf factor” genetics.

Dexter cattle, even bulls such as this one, are easy to handle and cheap to feed. Two Dexters can be bred at different times to produce a year-round supply of milk for about as much money and care as one large-sized cow.
