Key Benefits of Dexters:

  • True Small Breed of Cattle (not miniaturised)

  • Good Dual Purpose - Meat & Milk

  • Easy Care and Easy Calving

  • Efficient Pasture Utilisation (more to the acre)

  • Environmentally friendly due smaller size

  • Excellent natured animals

Pricing & Breeding:

Our Dexter are sold based on % of Dexter breeding. That is an Angus cow crossed with a Full Blood Dexter Bull would result in a Grade 1 (or 50%) Dexter calf, and so forth. The grading up table looks as follows:

Grade 1 Calf - 50% Dexter (not Stud register able)*

= Foundation Cow + Dexter Bull


Grade 2 Calf - 75% Dexter (Females Stud Register able)

= Grade 1 Cow + Dexter Bull


Grade 3 Calf - 87.5% Dexter (Females Stud Register able)

= Grade 2 Cow + Dexter Bull


Grade 4 Calf - 93.75% Dexter (Females Pure Breed Stud Register able)

 = Grade 3 Cow + Dexter Bull


Pure breed Calf - 96.88% Dexter (All Stud Register able as Pure Breed)

= Grade 4 Cow + Dexter Bull


We also have Full Blood animals that are not graded up, ie. 100% traceable Dexter heritage. We only used Full Blood Dexter Bulls in our grading program and also use Show quality foundation animals from Angus, MurrayGrey and Jersey cattle.


* From 31st March 2006, the Dexter Cattle Aust Inc will no longer be registering any NEW Grade 1 (or 1st Cross Animals). All new grade 2 and 3 calves can continue to be registered. All existing Grade 1 animals that are registered remain on the stud book.

All our stock prices are plus GST and include registration with Dexter Catte Assoc. Inc (Aust) (DCAI), DNA papers and registration document (where required). Delivery and Transport insurance can also be arranged.

We are also able to sell animals (vet) confirmed in calf if you so desire. We provide a fertility guarantee with all our stock.
