Here at the Miniature Cattle Research Facility, we have developed a new breed of miniature cattle. We are using a crossbred foundation of our Registered Miniature Irish Dexters with our Registered Miniature Herefords to create a Registered miniature "Kentshire®". It is the first all American Miniature Cattle Breed. A two breed triple cross, Kentshire®s are being developed in Kent, Washington USA at the Miniature Cattle Breeds Research Facility. Whenever you cross two separate and distinct pure breeds the results can be outstanding. To accomplish this we began by using our Registered Miniature Hereford bull, Happy Mountain® 1, who is 42" at five years to breed our Dexter cows who are under 42". This results in an animal with hybrid vigor. Then using our Registered Miniature Irish Dexter bull, Danny Boy, who is 38" at five years to breed the Miniature Hereford heifers who are under 42". Again, the result is an animal with hybrid vigor. These are the foundation bulls for the new Kentshire® breed. Thus begins the herd of F-1's. Then these F-1's are double-crossed to get the F-2's resulting in animals with "super hybrid vigor". We then linebreed to refine the herd focusing on the particular characteristics we want. The F-2's have the genetics from both foundation bulls and are therefore the start of a completely new breed, approximately a four year program. These are the breeding methods of the great cattle breeders of the past that were used to create some of the outstanding beef and dairy breeds of today.
