Welcome to Little Hoof Ranch

Don and Becky Swisher with herd sire CJ’s Archie

We are located three miles south of beautiful Douglas, Wyoming. Nestled at the foot of the Laramie Mountains with the North Platte River running right through our community, Douglas is an ideal home for our livestock. We have been raising Dexters over two decades. We have a small herd of Registered Red Polled Dexter Cattle. Our cattle have all the required tests needed and our entire herd is PHA and Chondro free. We halter train all of the cattle. This is a must since we show our animals. The Little Hoof Herd is registered with the “ADCA” American Dexter Cattle Association.

Our Dexter cattle are: A2A2 and A2A1. They are Heterozygous and Homozygous polled. Our main goal is to Raise High quality beef(meat) and Show animals. Their dispositions and confirmations are most important to us. Although we do not milk our cattle it is an important factor as well. We also have semen available from our bulls.

We are Members of the American Dexter Cattle Association, Rocky Mountain Dexter Breeders Association and the Missouri Dexter Breeders Association. In 2020, we were very fortunate to be able to donate a heifer to the Rocky Mountain Dexter Association Youth Heifer Program. Kaylee Snyder was awarded “Little Hoof Bella”.
