Mel- said:I was looking at dexters earlier in the summer and contacted several people listed on the dexter site in indiana and surrounding states.
I flat out could not find a single dexter cow that had ever been milked. Every single person I contacted just kept their dexters for pets!
bred cows were running around 850-1250.
I own two Dexters that were milked by the previous owner. One is purebred and the other is 1/2 Dexter. I don't milk them because of time constraints. I have a fairly new farm still under construction, and there is already more than I can do.Patt said:You have an amazingly rare animal, a Dexter that's actually been broke to milk!
How much milk are you getting a day from her?

Is there a market out there for Dexter's that have been milked for 1 yr? I may have two later on. Seems as though I have two many for the pasture I have, so have to cut back. Thanks
