Through a newly formed working relationship with Dr. Gabriella Nanci of Belle Fourche Farm we can now offer whole and half Dexter beeves. The Dexter is a heritage breed of cattle that originated in Ireland as a triple purpose homestead cow (beef, milk, and draft). Their smaller stature and hardy constitution makes them an excellent choice for raising on small acreages and course forage. Dexter beef is lean and high in quality and they weigh in at about half the weight of commercial beef breeds. If you are one who typically buys 1/2 a cow, a whole dexter would suit your needs.
Both wholes and halves are $4/lb based on hot carcass weight (HCW) Plus the cost of processing (approx. $0.84/lb HCW). The expected HCW is 300 – 360 lbs
