Starting a Family Farm in Vermont

Australian Lowline Angus —

Our Lowline Angus Cattle arrived last night! We got 4 heifers all of whom are bred for spring calves. They are great. Melissa and I became interested in the miniature breed of cattle last year. Since we want all of the cattle housed on our property the miniatures were very appealing to us.

Here are some miniature cattle facts — 

  • Cows and bulls measure between 36 and 44 inches at 3 years old
  • They are more docile than full size cattle
  • Consume 1/3 less feed and finish better on grass than full size
  • Ease of calving and great mothering skills
  • Diversified Usage – Milk, Beef, Breeding Stock, or Outdoor Pets
  • Fantastic quality of meat
  • Much easier on the land
  • Perfect for today’s smaller Family Farms.
  • Thanks again to Rod and Marilyn Hewitt of Dayspring Farm for all of your help! — John

They are beautiful! We’re looking into heritage breed cattle, possibly Dexters. I look forward to more pictures!

Jessie — I have a very good friend who currently has 5 Dexters for sale. They are all bred for spring calving. That is a wonderful breed. They are extremely docile and really cool. Let me know if you are interested in seeing them — John
