A North Texas Breeder of Quality Registered Irish Dexter Cattle

             Discover why our Dexters are the perfect choice
                    for your small acreage or family farm

When we moved to our small farm, we spent a lot of time researching various breeds of cattle. Since we only had a few acres, we needed a smaller breed.  We wanted cattle that were docile and easy to handle. We wanted to produce our own grass-fed meat, so we also wanted a breed that would offer quality, marbled meat from the limited pasture that we have.  We hadn't even heard of Dexters, but they turned out to be the perfect choice for us. To learn more about why, click on the tabs at the top of this home page.

If you're just beginning to learn about Dexter cattle, two great resources are The American Dexter Cattle Association and The Texas Dexter Breeders Association.

We'd love to hear from you and help you begin building a quality Dexter herd.
