In 2016 there were 154 Dexter Cattle Breeders in the Republic of Ireland registered in the Herd Book. 
This is an increase of 24 from 2015. 
The Republic of Ireland Group now has over 120 paid up members and membership is growing at a steady pace. There are 3 regional groups:
  • Connaught & Ulster
  • Munster
  • Leinster
Membership fees
Membership of the Dexter Cattle Society (Republic of Ireland) Group costs €25. 
The membership subscription for those who pay by direct debit is €20.

Regional Meetings
Members have the opportunity of attending area meetings 4 times per year in a variety of locations across the country; meetings include a farm walk to visit and discuss a member's Dexter Herd.  These meetings offer a popular networking  opportunity along with the chance to buy and sell and to learn from other herd practices. Join today and become involved in the regional group in your area.

How to join
New applicants and existing members renewing membership should download and print out either the MS Word format document or the PDF format document (for non-MS Word users)  attached at the foot of this page. Fill in your details and return by post as directed on the form.

Buying Dexters for the first time
If your intention is to breed "purebred" dexters, then it will be necessary to have your animals registered with the UK society, and before doing that, YOU must be a member of the UK society; the herd book is kept by the UK society.
