Dexter Cattle

The Dexter originated in the South Western Ireland. Like the Kerry, they are descended from the predominately black cattle of the early Celts. Dexter cows are extremely maternal and because of their dual purpose qualities will milk well. Calving problems are rare and newly born calves are up on their feet very quickly. Heifers mature young and can be put to the bull at 15 - 18 months of age. Dexter's are noted for their longevity and should breed regularly for 14 years or more. We now have 12 breeding cows and 1 bull. They are the long legged type and we now have cows of all 3 different breed colours. Our main purpose in keeping this breed is for meat production.
