Welcome to Moosters Meadows - home of Irish Dexter Cattle! We strive to breed a truly dual purpose Dexter, providing both excellent beef and milk. All of our Dexters are purebred and registered with the American Dexter Cattle Association (ADCA). We'll be blogging about what goes on here on our little ranch in Wyoming and life with Dexters. Feel free to visit our website as well.

Welcome New and Newer

We waited out weather here and there before our next herd bull could make the long ride from Oklahoma to Wyoming.  It was worth the wait!  Here's Sonny!  We are so very pleased that Sheila and Don from Euchee Creek Dexters agreed to let us be his new owners.  He's everything we'd hoped for and more!  What a gentle soul this guy has -- we know that he'll pass this temperament (and his great looks) on to his calves.

He was so sad to have to wait until this past weekend to meet his girls.  He called to them non-stop while he was waiting.  At last the time had come and the girls were pretty excited too!

He will sire all six of our fall calves;  Yanni, Wrencesky, Saphire, Gale, Aileen and Rhiannon will be the first to give us Sonny calves in 2016.  We'll have plenty of Hondo and Machine offspring in the the spring of 2016.  The fun will come as we begin to make our matches for the boys for 2017 calves. Hondo and Sonny are just so handsome!

We will be offering Machine for sale before our breeding season.  He's a handsome young bull too. Proven herd sire with 12 2015 registered calves on the ground (and multiple unregistered steers). He's parentage verified, pha and chondrodysplasia free, A2A2, homozygous polled and he carries red. He's also just very closely related to too many of our girls.  Let us know if you are interested!

Our last arrival of the year is Moosters Winter Weather.  She is a keeper - we've already decided that she will be staying here.  Love this little girl!
