We are changing some direction here and in so doing, we are selling off some livestock. We have two Dexter cows who are currently lactating. Both cows can be milked by hand or machine and both can potentially provide 2 gallons a day. Kiera is 8 years old, registered, and came to us from Hope Refuge Farm in Manchester, Kentucky. She has been tested and gives A2/A2 milk. She is very docile and can be led with a halter. Asking $2000 for her. Carla is 4 years old and came to us from Foggy Bottom Farm in Estillfork, Alabama. She’s not registered but probably can be. She stands well in a stanchion, but she’s not halter trained. I’m asking $1600 for her. Both cows can be seen here on the farm.
We also have Carla’s 17 month old heifer for sale and she is for sale as well. She too is not registered. She has been halter broke and has been worked with in the milking stanchion. She has been dehorned. Asking $1400. Glory is presently residing at Talla Glen Farm near Rockmart.
We also have two bottle calves one bull (Cyrus) and one heifer (Leola). These two are Belfairs which is a Dexter-Jersey Cross. They were both sired by a registered Mini-Jersey Bull. They are both very accustomed to people since we’ve been bottle feeding them. The bull calf is $125 and the heifer is $175. Both calves are here at East West Farm.
I will consider a package discount. I will also offer up to 4 hours of consultation for those who are wholly new to cows. If you have any questions, please give us a call at 678-223-3869.
Also, we have a dog who unfortunately, has taken to killing chickens. We absolutely can’t keep her. She’s 1 year old, spayed, crate trained, house broken and very sweet (except to chickens). She is free, however we appreciate any donation.
We will still be milking our Jersey and we will be adding more Jerseys. We have just found that if we are going to be successful at what we are doing, raising Dexters is just not profitable enough for us. We really do love this breed and we do want to see them flourish. These cows are ideal for the small land-holder who would like to provide their own milk and raise a steer for beef. Please forgive the poor quality pictures.
