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. http://www.nature.com/ejcn/journal/v59/n5/full/1602104a.html http://www.aseanfood.info/articles/11021883.pdf

Mrald Smarty Pants
Reg #: 026795
Sex: Female DOB: 2011-06-10
Sire: Mrald Ringo Fire
Dam: Mrald Katrina
This is an extremely pretty cow, small in stature, with a long hip, good feet, and virtually perfect udder. Click on her photo for more pictures of her, and pictures of her udder in lactation. Smarty Pants is a good brood cow and very nurturing of her calves. She keeps good flesh during lactation, and has a lot of rib spring and depth. She has a nice amount of width between her hind legs, which we consider a critical dual purpose trait. She is dehorned and carries red. She is a strong producer and her two calves with Macintosh have been outstanding. Smarty Pants was bred in Washington State by the Mrald herd. She has numerous show winners in her pedigree and has some very old breeding from the Hillview herd.
Sex: Male DOB: 2014-07-28
Sire: Masters Touch O'Shea 032147
Dam: GPF Ashley 024538
Anthony comes from a very sweet dam with a nice udder. His sire had excellent udders on both sides and we owned both his paternal grandparents and many of the ancestors on the paternal side, and well as his full sister. He is polled, red, and also carries dun. Click on his name for more pictures.

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.
