Welcome to the Wessex Dexter Group

 Hello world  - Photo taken by Jenny Mitchell            
The Wessex Dexter Group was started by a few like-minded people way back in 1992. It was established so that all the Dexter breeders in the Wessex area could get together and learn more about their cows whilst having fun. The Wessex Area includes all of Dorset, Somerset and Avon but welcomes members from other groups. We have a spring, summer and winter meeting where we discuss future dates, venues and ideas while talking about our cows. A guest who gives a presentation or demonstrates their area of expertise follows this. Such speakers have included foot trimming, managing TB by a Ministry Vet and the various cuts of beef by a local butcher. 
There are three colours Black Red & Dun
There are two types of Dexter short  and non short,both types are of equal merit.
They are extremely hardy and can live outside all year round.
They are dual purpose and produce excellent beef and milk
