Alvecote Dexters

Our cattle are raised with love, care and respect...

Dexter Cow and Calf

Why Buy An Alvecote Dexter?

There are Dexters and there are Dexters... a registration certificate is proof of parentage it is not proof that it is desirable or suitable to breed from. All offspring produced from our considered breeding programme are handled from birth and receive every care and attention possible in order to help them fulfil their potential as productive, well-balanced individuals that are easy to manage. When making what will hopefully be a long-term investment choosing health accredited stock from the outset is an important and cost effective consideration.

We take great care when rehoming our cattle and try to ensure that your prospective purchase matches your requirements as closely as possible. If we feel that we have something suitable we will make arrangements for you to visit the herd at a time convenient to you. Photographs and pedigree certificates are available on request.

AI straws also available stored at Genus.

Quality Dexter Cattle

Our philosophy is to provide the very best for our cattle right from the start, in terms of good nutrition, management and health care and this is reflected in the quality of animals that we offer for sale. We specialise in producing red Dexter cattle.

Elite Health Status

Being members of a cattle health scheme provides us with reassurance that we are doing all that we can to protect our herd and so in turn offer you the assurance that you are not buying in trouble. Our herd is accredited free of BVD, IBR, Leptospirosis and Johne's Disease (Risk Level 1). We subscribe to the bTB certification programme (low risk holding).

Ongoing Support

If you are new to the breed or indeed are new to keeping cattle, it is comforting to know that our commitment does not end when the sale is concluded. All our cattle come with a comprehensive information pack. We also provide telephone support for as long as you feel you need it and can arrange delivery of your purchase.
