Dexters For Sale
Note: Since we are posting our list of pending births, we are getting a lot of questions about “who has had what.” So, we have started posting calves for sale as soon as they are born.
All animals for sale are negative for Chondrodysplasia and PHA, (we do not market carriers of either known Dexter genetic lethal). All animals qualify for ADCA, PDCA, or CDCA Registration.
We will gladly provide any known genotype for any trait, so if you are looking for something in particular, let us know. Although the A2 allele is extremely common in our herd, Belle Fourche Farm makes no claim as to A2 milk making consumers “feel better,” or A2 milk treating or preventing any disease. Please check out the following journal articles on A2 milk and decide for yourself:

Mrald Moon Zappa is a very stout heifer with a solid frame. She has both width and depth and excellent udders on both sides of her pedigree. A very sought-after Frederick daughter! Carries both red and dun, dehorned.
This promises to be another lovely calf out of Belle Fourche Eloise. This is her first calf sired by Macintosh, so we are especially excited about her!
Belle Fourche Mon Chocolat
Reg #: 029824
Sex: Female DOB: 2012-11-28
Mon Chocolat is a polled, dun-colored cow with a great udder, level tail set, great feet, nice straight legs, and about a foot of width between her hind legs. It is hard to find these traits in dun animals. She also has unusual bloodlines for a dun, as her dun coloring goes back to our very first Dexters, prior to the Woodmagic importation into the United States. We have owned as much as 8 and 9 generations of her pedigree.

Here he is! This really is a smokin' bull calf, probably the best Platinum bull calf we have ever seen. He is wide, deep, correct, has a leg in every corner, nice feet, and from a great dam. He is dehorned, not polled, and carries red. Click on his picture for more info.

This book was written by our young neighbor. It is a delightful story and features Dexter Cattle, as well as Jacob and Shetland Sheep, Colored Angora Goats, and Icelandic Horses.
