THE DEXTER CATTLE SOCIETY

The Dexter breed originated in Ireland. The smallest native breed of cattle in the British Isles, they are hardy, dual-purpose cattle, producing excellent beef and milk, an ideal suckler cow for conservation grazing. We support Dexter cattle owners and breeders, offering advice and a range of services.
