Dexter cattle are a dual purpose breed, for meat and milk. They are smaller in size so you'll get less meat. However their meat is well marbled and tender. You don't get a huge amount of milk, however their milk is known to be easier to digest. The breed is known for their hardiness, docility , thriftiness and calving ease. A good choice for small land owners. So what do you think? Are Dexter's right for you? Don't hesitate to go to the Canadian Dexter Cattle Association website to find out more about this fine breed of cattle, and check out some of the other breeders' animals for sale on that site and this site. Thanks for your interest in Dexter cattle!
