We have two very sweet Dexter Cows, Buttercup & Clover, and now the new calf, Treddy.

Dexter cattle originated in Ireland and are the smallest of British breeds - first introduced into England in 1882.  They are extremely hardy and can live outdoors all year round if necessary.  We like to provide them with shelter over winter as this gives the grazing areas chance to recover in time for Spring and also gives the cattle some respite from our cold wet weather.

Dexters come in three colours – black, red and dun. The Dexter is traditionally a horned breed.
