About Us


The Group has been started by a number of enthusiastic people, keen to promote the Dexter breed and encourage other dexter breeders. Established so that Dexter breeders could get together and learn more about their cows whilst having fun.

Although the group is based in the NI membership is open to anyone from the British Isles and Ireland.  Our committee meetings are held throughout the 6 counties.

The group has a wide range of experience from beef selling, to showing in the ring, with Dexter Cattle Society judge to guide us.

We have members who only keep a couple of cattle on smallholdings to members with 150 + cattle who are selling dexter beef on a commercial basis. Some of us have been in Dexters for over a decade, while some are only starting out. What we all have in common is a love of the breed, the desire to help others and share ideas, while talking about our cows.

Our intentions are simple friendly and impartial advice if needed to help new and existing breeders.

As a group we have meetings and events throughout the year. Check out our news page to learn more about our group’s activities.
