History in Austria

In 2010 the first Dexter cattle have been bought by Austrian farmers from Denmark, Switzerland and Germany. They are primarly kept by farmers who are marketing the beef on their own. Currently the main goal is to build a steady population and improve the breed. At the moment the breeders are located in Burgenland, Lower Austria and also in Vorarlberg.
