Growing and living on your own beef cattle is all part of farm life. Our children
know where meat comes from, and they know that a steer is destined for the BBQ. They have also witnessed the wonders of a calf being born.
Our Cows are mostly Dexters, Black ones. We have a Red Poll cow and her 3 daughters, all Dexter Red Poll crosses.....one Black, 2 Red....which are now pregnant to a lovely Black bull Elgin Park Montgomery. (owned by Peter and Celia Gulbin of Hideaway Dexter Stud, Elphinstone Victoria). His calves are due early October.
We did have
2 suprise Red
