My wife and I have been breeding pure bred Dexter cows since 2003. This is a small breed cow used for both dairy and beef production. Having a small farm has been a huge learning exercise for us as we did not grow up farming. I think it is a wonderful way to live and there is always something new to learn. The Canadian Dexter Cattle Association (CDCA) is a great site to learn more about Dexter cattle.
I have also learnt many things about keeping cattle from Temple Grandin who has done ground breaking work on handling livestock. She has also published works talking about the nature of the autistic mind.
