Welcome to the Dexter SA Home page
Allow us to introduce you to one of the most productive cattle breeds in the world.....

- Being able to keep 3 Dexters instead of any 2 large framed animals grazing on the same hectare of land
- The breed is a non-selective feeder, highly adaptable, very hardy and easy on the veld.

- The Dexter is a dual purpose breed with exceptional meat and milk qualities.
- Dexter meat is know for exceptional marbling, tenderness and flavor.
- Dexters have a significant larger Eye Muscle Area (EMA) than other breeds, indicating more saleable meat.
- Dexters have a good temperament, making them easy to handle.
- Dexter cows have exceptional maternal instincts, taking great care of their young.
- Cows calve at a young age and have low inter-calving periods(ICP's).
- Calves are weaned at 205 days at plus 55% of the mother's weight.
