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, 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 sample of current literature on A2 milk.
Here is a sample of some of the calves we are expecting:Belle Fourche MonAmie X Mrald Overture Belle Fourche Hermione X Belle Fourche Macintosh Mrald Sabrina Fair X Belle Fourche Macintosh Belle Fourche Eloise X Belle Fourche Macintosh Belle Fourche Virginia X Belle Fourche Mon Coco Belle Fourche Penny Lane X Belle Fourche Mon Coco Belle Fourche Baby Pink X Mrald Absolutely Perfect

Mary Belle is a homozygous polled red heifer with a very correct frame, a level topline and lots of depth. Mary Belle is the black nosed type of red. Her sire is a product of embryo transfer and was selected from a very outstanding cross of Mrald Overture and Belle Fourche Pippi, (you can look up both in our herdbook section). Mary Belle's dam, Katie Belle, is a smaller cow, with one of the sweetest dispositions ever. She just wants to hug. She also doesn't mind standing for "Cowboy" photos, and letting multiple kids sit on her back.
This polled dun heifer shows some great potential and some very unique bloodlines for a dun! We do not know yet if she is homozygous or heterozygous polled, but we will update her entry when we get more information. Click on her name for more photos.
This is a homozygous polled red heifer with lots of Mr. Right in her pedigree! She also comes from a heavily muscled dam with a terrific udder. Teresa has a very stout build with lots of width and depth. Click on her name for more photos.
Follow Pink, a young Dexter cow, as she and her barnyard friends solve the mystery of the stable room monster.
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.
Susanne Barnett is a 12 year old girl who loves working with farm animals. She also enjoys writing children's stories. She brought these two hobbies together through "Pink and the Mystery of the Stable Room Monster". Susanne hopes children will not only enjoy the story but will also develop a love for some of the rare breeds of animals that live on American farms.
