I'm going to look at a Dexter cross cow tomorrow- she looks to be short legged. Is this a red flag? She has had a couple of calves before, not at her current owners, but the prior owner. Current owner says she " has babies that are much smaller than her" Cow is around 44 inches, and owner doesn't know what she was bred to. Cow is 8 years old, pretty fat, but owner says prior owner never had any trouble getting her bred. We are just tired of feeding our big cows- we have a Hereford and her Murray grey cross baby-- only have 4 acres, and so this year it was so dry we started feeding in early August. Also we don't need a big cow to butcher- we can't eat that much beef. Any comments welcome- Thanks!
