Moosters Reg Flag
ADCA #043800 – View Pedigree
Flag is going to be a deep bodied cow with a very straight topline and nice legs and feet.  Broad muzzled, this 3/15/18 heifer is red, heterozygous polled, A2A2, PHA and chondrodysplasia free.  She’s the offspring of PRF Hondo Lane and CJS Bambi.  Plenty of Mulligan and Cornahir Outlaw in her background.  We owned her great granddam before her passing and still have her dam and sire on site.  You’ll be pleased with what you see!

Moosters Sugar Baby
ADCA #043636 – View Pedigree

Sugar is a beautiful young heifer out of our oldest cow, Glenn Land Neev (who is still going strong at 15 ½ years old!). That’s her in the picture standing next to Sugar. Born 3/12/18, Sugar is heterozygous polled, black (carrying E+ red from her sire), A2A2, PHA and chondrodysplasia free. Like all our heifers, she is parentage verified to her dam and her sire, PRF Hondo Lane. If you are looking to add solid brood cow quality to your herd, this is your girl!

Moosters Face the Music
ADCA #041047 – View Pedigree

Confirmed bred to PRF Hondo Lane (ADCA #031963) for a spring 2019 homozygous polled calf. Music is a well built, homozygous polled heifer who should calve in March of 2019. She’s had some halter work, but we wouldn’t call her fully “halter trained” at this point. Her price reflects that. On the other hand, she will come right over to get her share of the treats and would be easy to train. She is black and carries one copy of E+ red, and an obligate non-carrier of PHA and chondrodysplasia.

Moosters Essence of Red
ADCA #043639 – View Pedigree

Essence is a pretty little heifer from two of our favorites – Sonny and Embrace. This 3/13/18 heifer is red (does not carry dun), heterozygous polled, A2A2, PHA and chondrodysplasia free. She will make a sweet addition to any herd looking for A2A2 beta casein and a cow who will have an udder with level floor and even teats. She has nice feet and legs. Even better, her temperament is highly rated in a herd of already easy going Dexters. First to learn her halter manners in her training group, she loves to be brushed and handled.

Moosters Jelly Bean
ADCA #043802 – View Pedigree

This little lady has it all. Great looks from her dam, Moosters Kathleen along with a sweet temperament and conformation from her sire Euchee Creek’s Red Sonny. She has lots of show potential! Jelly Bean is homozygous polled, A2A2, E+E+ red and carries one copy of dun, PHA and chondrodyspasia free. She can bring everything you’ve been looking for to your herd in one purchase.

Magic Hills Farm Rose
ADCA #034292 – View Pedigree

Rose has provided us with a perfect calf each and every year. This year, through no fault of hers, her calf died (weather related). She is being sold as bred for a 2019 calf and will have her pregnancy verified through Biopryn. Sire is probably PRF Hondo Lane, but could be Euchee Creek’s Red Sonny. Parentage testing will prove the sire when you are ready to register her calf. Rose is a beautifully built cow with a nice udder proportionate to her size. She is on the shorter end of the height scale and has produced handsome, moderate height bulls. Rose is not halter trained, but she’s easy to be around. She is red (E+/e), heterozygous polled, tested free of PHA and chondrodysplasia, A2A2 beta casein. Her genotype is on file at both Texas A&M and UC Davis.

Milking our first freshener Moosters A Dash of Moxie (Moxie Moos). This girl was made to milk. All 4 on the floor, calm in the stanchion, easy to milk. Her training before we received her, and reinforced here, has given us a wonderful girl that I enjoy milking in the morning!

We would like to introduce our newest addition to our Dexter Herd: Moosters Juliet Capulet!

Darling Juliet hails all the way from Wyoming – she was able to hitch a ride with the Moosters Meadows Dexter Cattle show string to the ADCA National Show in Kansas, and then she hitched a ride back east with another gracious Dexter family.

I have been admiring the Moosters Meadows herd for years, and I feel so fortunate that we could add Juliet to our herd. Out in the field, I had to sneak up on her to try to get some pictures, she is so friendly that I mostly just got nose pictures otherwise!

– Julie Reimer, Rancho Relaxo, Marion, Virginia

This guy ❤️ Turning 18 months old tomorrow, I believe. He was napping with his girls this afternoon, so I snapped this quick pic.

Laramie is gentle, faithful, and so easy to handle. He has captured our hearts! We’re so thankful we bought this boy from Moosters Meadows!

He is such a handsome boy. His calves are gonna be gorgeous . . . stay tuned . . .

Purchasing Details

We do require a 25% deposit to hold a specific animal for you. We don’t consider a Mooster sold until we have received your deposit. Final payment is due upon pick up.

Our pricing includes the following:

  • An ADCA registered Dexter and the cost of transferring the registration to you.
  • Brand inspection (required by the state of Wyoming)
  • Certificate of veterinary inspection (CVI) if the Dexter is being sold out of state
  • Copies of all testing and any relevant parent testing.
  • Continued support by phone or email for as long as you need it!
  • None of the above applies to steers – they are sold unregistered, but the pricing will include the cost of the brand inspection.

A Buyer’s Guide

The ADCA has prepared a Buyers Checklist – available on the ADCA website. The Buyer Beware statement is simply a warning to do your homework. When you consider buying from us, take a look at the following (checklist borrowed, in part, from the ADCA):

  • Be sure the animal is registered.

Moosters Meadows sells only registered Dexters. We are members of the ADCA and all of our Dexters are registered through this registry.

  • Make sure that the animal can meet your state’s health requirements.

Discuss those requirements (and who pays if there are inoculations or tests needed for the animal to come to your state) with the seller prior to purchase. Leave no room for misunderstandings.

  • Ask to see offspring (or the sire and/or dam) of the Dexter you are purchasing. If they aren’t available, photos can often help. Familiarize yourself with both good traits and faults of the breed so that you know what you are seeing.

As conscientious breeders, we will always point out both the faults (as we know them) and positives about our animals.

  • Ask to see copies of any genetic testing that you deem important such as chondrodysplasia, PHA, color, A2 Beta-Casein or genotyping. Make sure that the test results are on file with the ADCA or that copies are made available to you.

All our Moosters are tested for PHA and chondrodysplasia (or are obligate offspring of tested parents). All of our animals have been tested for A2 Beta-Casein. We only use bulls that are A2/A2. All of our animals born since 2013 (and many before that) are parentage verified so you will have proof of both the sire and the dam of the animal you are purchasing. Many of our animals have been color tested as well. We provide copies of all tests to you, including tests of parents, upon request, if the animal is an obligate.

  • If the animal is not registered, ask for it to be registered BEFORE you purchase! Animals without registration papers may not be able to be registered. If there is any question about registration, contact your Regional Director before you buy. Registration fees and transfer fees can be paid by either the buyer or the seller.

All Moosters are sold registered and we pay the transfer fee (and perform the transfer for you).

We are always willing to provide a potential buyer with a list of folks who have purchased animals from us. They can speak to the quality of the animals and their experiences with us prior to and after the sale. We are always there for you after the sale by phone and by email!
