The Relaxed Dexter Herd Diary entries

Parsley
Pedigree - Whitestone Primrose 2nd
Relaxed at Home
Cow - born 9 April 2014
Thyme
Pedigree - Whitestone Daphne 2nd
Relaxed at Home
Cow - born 21 May 2015
Parsley is a fairly gentle giant and really easy going. She LOVES a few pellets, will eat from your hand and enjoys a scratch behind the ears! Thyme enjoys a good a back rub if she is in the mood - which she usually is. She is a bit more wary than Parsley and not quite so inquisitive.
The Relaxed Dexter herd
We took delivery of our very first cattle on 1st September 2016, a dream of some 30 years fulfilled at last for Jack. It was always going to be Dexters. They are a classic 'smallholder's' cow: needing less space than other cattle, able to stay out all winter (if the ground permits) and also being dual purpose - providing both meat and milk. We don’t currently have plans to grow the herd: our aims are to raise one or two calves a year for meat (for meat boxes and our own consumption) and to enjoy their presence on our holding. We’d love to think that one day we might start to milk them and then use both the milk and cream for our own ice cream as well as for Jack’s tea (obviously)! Spare calves will be sold for breeding and/or for others to rear on for meat!!
