Pedigree Dexter Cattle
We have kept a small herd of pedigree Dexters since 2015. Originally from Ireland, these small cattle are hardy, easy to manage and popular with smallholders. The Dexter Cattle Society has lots of information about the breed and certifies our beef.
To minimise animal health risks we operate a closed herd system, with our own bull "Mr Gnu" and 5 breeding cows. They stay outdoors all year, feeding only on our traditional pasture and the hay it produces.
We sell year old female calves for breeding, keeping the steers for about 2 years before sending them to a local butcher and then selling our beef boxes.
