Breeding Pairs and Trios for Sale
Asking prices for pairs from $1600 - $3500. Possibilities for polled pairs, red pairs, black horned pairs...


Since I work hard to develop and know my bulls, I like to let prospective buyers choose a bull (calf or adult), or narrow to a choice of two bulls, first. Then I can go over compatibility factors among the females I have for sale.

Bulls

I have emphasized my bulls. As recommended by rare breed conservators, I have grown out bulls from a number of my lines to see how they develop. Buyers often try to assess a bull at a young age by his looks. It is often difficult to assess a bull at the age many are cut, particularly when the breeder does only grass-feeding, and even more difficult to guess what the bull will produce, the real test. With the aid of the eyes of some in my grazing group, I have worked toward good beef conformation, while with the help of aAa, I have worked toward balanced structure so as not to lose sight of the dairy side of "dual purpose." With my vet's help, I have tested my herd to be free of many health issues. With the help of Agrigenomics lab testing most of my herd for chondrodysplasia in the first months of the DNA test's availability, I can offer buyers assurance about their bull's status in reference to chondro. I now have PHA information on most of my animals as well. I have sought out bulls from distant states to provide what I wanted in my herd. And with a great deal of effort in management, I have used the services of a number of my bulls to give certain traits in my calves. Therefore, I highlight my bulls for sale. Indeed, herds need females, and several of them. But without effort such as I've described on the bull side, Dexter breeders are often reduced to "using the local bull"; because they do not have the offspring, siblings, and parents to see for a given bull,they are likely to chose to buy or use a bull based on his individual appearance, or the convenience of his location. I hope that the additional effort of Gladhour Farm in bull-raising creates a positive influence in the longterm for the Dexter breed.
