 Lowline Angus Calf I took a small road trip with my youngest daughter Emma on Saturday to visit Rod and Marilyn Hewitt of Dayspring Farm in Rockingham, VT. I found their farm online while looking for Miniature Cattle breeders in Vermont. I have met with Rod several times over the last few months. He raises Dexter Cattle for grass fed beef and recently purchased a herd of Lowline Angus Heifers. We were very interested in the Dexters as well as the Lowlines. After seeing both breeds I became more intersted in the Lowlines. Rod decided that having so many Dexters and now adding the Lowlines to his farm was just going to be too much. He contacted me and asked if I would be interested in buying some. Melissa and I saw this as a great opportunity for our Farm and deceided to purchase 4 Lowline Angus heifers from him. The heifers will become pregnant this summer. We are still in the construction phase of the barn as well as the farm so we will be getting them when we are up and running.
