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



Belle Fourche Kelly Jean

Belle Fourche Kelly Jean

Belle Fourche Kelly Jean
Sex: Female   DOB: 2017-03-23
Sire: Belle Fourche Bogart
Dam: Belle Fourche Hot Tamale

This darling polled black heifer has some of our great older bloodlines, including hillview Frida (dam of Belle Fourche Mr. Right,) Belle Fourche Rousseau, and Serenity Oaks Farm Taco. Her dam has a perfect udder and a great disposition.  Kelly Jean has the exceptional heel depth that comes so often with Taco breeding, so is long bodied, with a long hip.  

 




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.  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. 




Belle Fourche Bayeux

Belle Fourche Bayeux

Belle Fourche Bayeux
Sex: Female   DOB: 2017-03-16
Sire: Mrald Amadeus
Dam: Dexter Downs Normandy

This red, homozygous polled heifer is from some of our favorite Belle Fourche/Hillview bloodlines, including Hillview Jan, Hillview Jemma, Hillview Sally, and Belle Fourche Mr. Right. The is a very correct heifer, with both width and depth. 

 




Belle Fourche Anna

Belle Fourche Anna

Belle Fourche Anna
Sex: Female   DOB: 2017-02-23
Sire: Dexter Downs Jaydon
Dam: RFA Antipodal

This is a stout, fast-growing, black, polled heifer, selected largely for udder qualities. We were always impressed with the udder of a cow named Twin Springs Storm. Over the years, we purchased her daughter sired by Belle Fourche Mr. Right, collected semen from her son sired by Belle Fourche Apple Jack, and eventually bought the cow, herself. At 13, her udder was still lovely, and the cow had a lot of substance to her.  This calf is sired by the Storm son from our bull, Apple Jack, (who is also a half brother to both our current herd sire's, Macintosh and Braeburn).  The dam, Antipodal, is  a solid cow with lots of depth and an ideal hand milking udder.
