Our Irish Dexter Herd

We have been working on our herd genetics and phenotype since the day we learned it was important. Our ultimate goal is to have a herd of Red, homozygous polled, A2A2 Irish Dexter Cattle, with a very good phenotype. Developing a herd is a process. We're still generations away from having "our line" of cattle with the same phenotype throughout the herd. We will continue to breed and sell as we keep improving our own herd development. We'll be selling some nice cattle along the way for you to improve your herd. Keep your eye on our sale page if you're looking for a Dexter livestock dealer.

Romeo is a young bull, currently about 18 months old. His sire is Euchee Creek Red Sonny, Romeo is developing nicely into a well built bull that is a wonderful producer. Romeo began breeding at 15 months old and has  proven to be very prolific. Red, homozygous polled, A2A2. His first calves will arrive in fall 2018. We are nervously awaiting the arrival of his babies.  With the great line up of girls we have they're going to be great calves!
