You are invited to join "The Sierra Dexters Clan" for a day, or the entire week-end 

June 9 - 10
The Mother-Lode Highland Games and Celtic Festival
at the Northern California Amador County Fairgrounds 

Horned and polled Dexter cattle will be representing their Celtic, Irish origins at this event. Your Irish Dexter cattle will be on exhibit in the animal area, parading in the noon-time parade, and be walking amongst the visitors throughout the day.
