Dexters For Sale

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, just let us know.  Although the A2 allele is very common in our herd, we have seen nothing published in support of the A2 hypothesis in over a decade.  Belle Fourche Farm makes no claim as to A2 milk making consumers “feel better,”  or A2 milk treating or preventing any disease. Because of this, we feel it would be unfair to advertise animals as A2 or to price them differently. Here is a review of current literature on A2 milk.

Cows



WWF Ruby Belle

WWF Ruby Belle

WWF Ruby Belle   Reg #: 033718
Sex: Female   DOB: 2012-07-06
Sire: Masters Touch O'Shea
Dam: GPF Kate

This is a nicely built polled red cow with nice length of body, good hook to pin length/angle, and a long hip. Ruby Belle has been A.I.'D to Wee Gaelic Mr. O'Toole, a dun Canadian bull (deceased for two decades)  known for udder conformation. Color shouldn't matter, but this is one of the most beautiful reds ever. She is deep, dark red, with a black nose and eyeliner.  She has no sign of the "mealy mouth pattern," or other lighter shading.  Instead,  she is just a consistent mahoghany throughout.  She has some very exceptional animals on her sire's side. Make sure you look up Hillview Jan and Belle Fourche Leo in our herdbook section, as they are her paternal grandparents. Click on her photo for more info.

Mrald Smarty Pants

Mrald Smarty Pants   Reg #: 026795
Sex: Female   DOB: 2011-06-10
Sire: Mrald Ringo Fire
Dam: Mrald Katrina

This cow has a beautiful udder and great feet. She also has nice width between her legs and great body depth. She has been a tremendous producer for us and her oldest daughter has freshened with the same ideal udder, and great production as a milk cow. Smarty Pants has been a brood cow her whole life and it would be difficult to convince her to be a milk cow. But, she will produce some stunning calves for your herd.
