The original Dexter Cattle Herd Books were first established in 1890, and were reliant upon the integrity and accuracy of the breeders at that time.

Today, the Purebred Dexter Cattle Registry affirms the value of integrity and science by offering both DNA tested and untested registration options. The choice is yours.​

Our registration certificates can provide a complete record by including

  • Four generations of pedigree

  • Other Dexter registry ID numbers

  • Genotyping or parent verification status

  • Chondro and PHA status

  • Polled status

  • Color markers

  • A2 status
