Scientific upgrades, recognized by most breed associations, are considered complete after six generations making the resulting cattle 31/32 of the original breed; most of our White Dexters are at eight generations after the original White Park cross. The integrity of the pedigree is the cornerstone of our breed and allows us to verify the Dexter heritage of every one of our cattle.
White Dexters Today
The breed registry has grown by over 1000% since introduced to the public in 2014 and now spans coast to coast in 22 different states. The polled gene was introduced by breeding a multi-generation White bull to registered, polled Dexter cows resulting in even more versatile bloodlines to choose from. The breed now offers horned, polled, carrier, non-carrier, red-tipped and black-tipped options to satisfy the most discerning breeder.
This is not an association and there are no membership fees! We strive to keep things simple, accurate and economical. Testing is optional at the owner’s discretion or buyer’s request; it is not required in order to register. Owning these cattle should be a joy and we have purposely developed a registry that is both user-friendly yet detailed to ensure the integrity of the breed.

We, the White Dexter Cattle Registry, are committed to promoting and expanding our breed with integrity and simplicity. As an upgrade to the 200 year old Dexter breed, we intend to keep the triple purpose characteristics of beef, milk and oxen with our exciting new color.
Breeding with integrity is of the upmost importance therefore we will maintain an accurate registry. We will actively promote the breed and keep fellow breeders well informed of what our potential customers are requesting. As a registry, we are a team with the mutual goal of breeding wisely, promoting the breed, and enjoying our cattle raising experience.
No testing is required by the registry. Testing is encouraged but not mandated as we believe that the quality of our cattle are based on many more factors than just test results and, again, we want to keep ownership of White Dexters simple and enjoyable, not a burden.
The WDCR is committed to keeping the registration process simple and economical. It is to keep accurate pedigree records to safeguard your investment, yet remain user-friendly and a positive experience. We refuse to burden our owners with mandatory testing and expenses.
Beware of purchasing a white animal that resembles a White Dexter that is not registered in the WDCR. The White Dexter name has been trademarked and no breeder should use the name if their animals are not verified through the WDCR. This ensures that all of the White Dexters are pure in bloodlines and buyers know exactly what they are purchasing.
