DEXTER CATTLE PROMOTION GROUP OF VICTORIA
The Dexter Promotion Group of Victoria (DCAI) has, on average, 40 members at any given time.
The annual activities often include On Farm Field Days, Seymour Alternative Farming Expo, Rural Shows and in the past an annual Dexter Breed show.
Seymour Alternative Farming Expo is generally held in April during the Victorian school holidays. The group has a dedicated team of members at the expo every day specifically to answer questions and assist people in understanding this wonderful breed of cattle.
Seymour attracts a large audience over 25 thousand visitors over 3 days.
Members of the Dexter Group come from many different areas of Victoria, all breed Dexter’s for different reasons and have a variety of herd sizes. Our membership includes individuals with small boutique herds, hobbyists and larger operations with a focus on the Beef production.
In the past Victoria has been home to some fabulous Cheese production using Dexter milk.
Foundation members, long time enthusiasts and relatively new members share their knowledge and experience, friendship and sense of humor at field days, shows and social events.
Regular newsletters help to keep members up to date with all things Dexter and there is a good network of contacts if members are looking for advice or just want to talk cattle.
New members and interested visitors are always welcome to attend Group activities. Confirmed dates for Group events, the latest newsletter can be obtained from our Group Secretary through our DCAI website.
