ADCA Registered Dexter Cattle

We had been purchasing local grass fed beef from neighbors for several years and decided we would like to raise our own. We also wanted to have a family milk cow so we researched various breeds and decided Dexter cattle would be a perfect match for our needs.

Dexters are a dual purpose breed meaning that they are bred both for meat and milk production. They are also smaller than most cattle so they do not require as much feed and have a much lighter impact on pastures than the heavier breeds. We have been very pleased with our selection and enjoy the rich milk provided by Dixie. We've been amazed how much milk can come out of such a small cow. More than enough for our large family!

Bulls

Circle H's Jordan
ADCA Reg. No: 10668

Jordan was our first bull and is now working on a farm in Eastern Washington.

Toro was the next bull on our farm. We've had him about 5 years and unfortunately it came time to change him out. He was very mild mannered and an easy keeper.

Back-Acres Toro, ADCA Reg. No: 020778

Our current bull is a nice polled red bull from the Cascade herd. We are excited to introduce some read into our herd.

Woodland's Alder, ADCA Reg No: 036281

 

Milk Cow For Sale

Now's your chance to obtain an excellent family milk cow that knows her job well. We have been milking her as a family the past 8 years. Dixie knows her name and is halter trained. We are keeping one of her daughters and have a new bull now so reluctantly need to transition her out of our herd. Since she has been with our new bull Woodland's Alder she is most likely bred and ready to calve next spring.

Khaki Farmer Dixie

Here she is being an excellent mother to one of her calves we are teaching to lead on the halter in order to get a treat from mom.
