Originating in Ireland, the small, sturdy Dexter Cattle is short compared to other UK-bred livestock. Selected for conservation grazing by our ourselves and the National Trust™, our cattle live on cliff land that they happily graze upon. The breed is great for small holders or larger enterprises, and produce amazing beef that you are sure to enjoy. Our first Dexter Cattle were purchased in 2003, and we have been breeding from this nucleus herd ever since.
As the cattle are fed solely on a grass-based diet, the beef is full of health benefits. Living in a free and natural environment, our Dexters live happily, and we have reared them successfully over the years. They are extremely docile and are easy to take care of. Stock is available for both breeding and fattening, and we are always happy to answer any questions that you may have.
