Duffryn Dexter Breed
Dexters are originally from Ireland. They were first introduced to England in 1882 and The Kerry and Dexter Cattle Society was formed in 1892.
It is the smallest of British cattle and a dual purpose animal, a Dexter can be black, red or dun and either short or non short.
They are very good mothers and milk very well for their size, often giving well over 4% butterfat and 3.50% protein, when kept as dairy cows they can give up to 14 litres.
A cow will usually have a calf every year well into her teens, at the moment of writing I have a cow of 16 and a cow of 17 years both still healthy and calving regularly.
