How it all started...

Gschwendt Pedigree Dexters was started off by Nikolaus in March 2013 when he purchased his first Dexter cow and calf; Whalton Manor Alice with her heifer calf Whalton Manor Peony.

Unbeknown to us, Alice was in calf when we bought her!  Gschwendt Annalena was born on 26th July 2013 - this was the start of something special. 

With the help of Nikolaus' parents Albert and Elaine, their dedication and passion has seen this one cow and calf grow into a thriving little herd. 

Fast forward four years and we have 12 breeding cows, 7 young heifers, 4 bulls and 2 steers!
