Welcome to the Farm!
Is Winter over yet???
The herds survived that January Polar Vortex which dropped the high temperatures down to minus single digits. Dexters and Spanish goats are hearty souls indeed! Now it looks like February is going out with a bang and March acting like January with another bitter cold snap.
SteelMeadow's Thor has left for his new farm- the weaned bull calf was started on training and may have a future showing in Arkansas events. We with him and his first-time Dexter owners all the best!
Pi had her calf, a dun bull, in between the snowfalls. SteelMeadow's Freyr is a spunky thing and our heifer Miss Maudie is his babysitter. Where he goes, she goes. You can read about him in our Livestock for Sale page. We willkeep him intact to see how he grows. His pedigree is very traditional, no modern reds and no polled genetics.
Look for our blog posts on Mother Earth News: here is a link for the first one:
*About Irish Dexter Cattle
And the second blog about baking bread:
*Perfect Sandwich Bread
News! All our Irish Dexters are now sampled and test results in! The entire herd is officially PHA free! Results of these and additional tests are posted with each Dexter on the Irish Dexter Cattle page.
