Pan de Dia Ranchito
(Our Daily Bread)
As a family owned and operated farmstead, the pursuit of quality Irish Dexter Cattle for use as family milk cow prospects, breeding stock and grass-fed/finished beef is a primary goal.
Genetic testing along with conformation and temperament are used to select broodstock and client offerings. Testing is used in part to pursue dun/red polled and A2/A2 Beta Casein traits.
The docile temperament, friendly nature, and thrifty constitution was seen as a natural choice. The milking abilities of the Dexter are ideal for the health concious person who desires a superior “raw milk” option. The Dexter’s ability to finish well on a diet of mother’s milk and grass forage produces a tasty and healthy food for the family.
As with all Dexter owners, once we get started on the Dexter breed, it’s hard to get us to stop.
