About White Mini Dexter Cattle

Mini White Dexter’s are among the smallest of cattle breeds in the world, standing 40″ tall and weighing 700–900 pounds.  They originated in northwestern Ireland around 1882.

White dexter cattle are the result of ten years of selective breeding that began with a White Park bull bred to registered Dexter cows.  The white colored calves were specifically selected to be bred with a registered purebred Dexter and over the course of 8 breedings, the White Dexter became over 96% purebred in itself.  They Require much less land than normal cattle and less grain. One thing to note is that White Dexters are not registered with the ADCA, but rather with the with the White Cattle Registry.  

All Our cattle are fully vaccinated, healthy and genetically diverse.  These “mini-cows” really add some character to any farm!

Below you will find some interesting facts along with items for sales such as necklaces, shirts, paintings, ornaments and much more!
