Dexter cattle are a tri-purpose breed: beef, milk, and draft. As such, breeders should strive to produce well conformed, welltempered
animals that efficiently meet the demands of all three purposes without straying into the extremes of strictly dairy or
strictly beef characteristics. The ideal Dexter cow should experience no problems at parturition and should display appropriately
strong maternal instincts. She should produce enough rich milk to raise a healthy calf with a substantial weaning weight while
still providing a reasonable amount of milk for her owner. Dexter bulls should be even tempered, balanced-looking athletes that
perform their breeding tasks without losing a smooth, muscled condition. Dexter steers should produce heavy carcasses that
produce the finest quality beef that displays sufficient marbling. Dexter oxen should display the intelligence and cooperative
temperament that deems them excellent candidates for stout, amiable, long-lived draft animals. And every Dexter, whether
cow, heifer, calf, bull, steer, or oxen, should display attributes of thriftiness that are the trademark of this hardy heritage breed.
Dexters are not a miniature breed; their size is not due to breeding programs aimed at miniaturization. As the smallest naturally
-statured breed in the world, their size of bone, depth of body, and shortness of leg should compose a consistently uniform harmony
throughout the animal’s body. A Dexter should look balanced and smoothly blended with proportions that result in a uniform,
harmonious, graceful animal. Characteristics that determine the feeding ability, reproductive capacity, health, vigor and
longevity should be apparent:
broad mouth and large nostrils
wide and deep chest capacity, as determined by the length and fullness of the fore ribs and width of chest floor
deep heart girth and well-sprung ribs encasing the diaphragm, heart and lungs
