Pint sized ancient Irish cattle
Why this breed
The smallest breed of cattle in Europe, the Dexter was bred in Tipperary in the 1750s from descendants of the ancient black cattle kept by the early Celts. Dexters were endangered in the 1930s, but now thanks to their ability to mature early feeding on grass and the impeccable eating quality of its neat, small cuts, the breed is bouncing back. This welcome resurgence has been aided hugely by frequent television appearances, and chefs heralding the standout quality of its beef.
At Farmison & Co we are working together with farmers and actively promoting values that were in danger of being lost elsewhere through industrial processes.
