History: Dexters originated in Ireland where they were bred by small land holders. Initially brought to America in the early 1900's, over the last few years Dexters have become increasingly popular due to their traits and benefits. Their excellent dispositions are prized and they require less pasture and feed than other breeds and are suited to almost any climate in North America. Fertility is excellent and smaller calves mean less trouble with birthing. They are dual purpose, meaning the Dexter can be raised for either milk or meat.
