Dexters are the smallest breed of cattle other than minatures and are believed to have originated in Ireland. They stand 38 to 42 inches with cows being 600-700lbs and bulls 900-1000lbs. They started to become known in the 1700's when farmers found that they were practical for small plots of land. Perfect for the family farm they produce approx. 2 gallons of milk and 3 quarts of cream a day. Considered a tri-use animal, the milk is high in fat, the meat a high quality and they can be trained as oxen too. The most common color is black though some may be red or dunn.
