Welcome To Dexter Corner
Welcome to Dexter Corner.
Located in South Central Illinois.
I am Tim O'Donnell, I have owned Jersey cattle since purchasing my first cow in August 1974. For years I raised and have shown standard-size Jerseys.  My love for the Jersey cow was inherited from my Grandma as a young boy.  Now, 40 years later, I still have the same affection for this unique breed.  In 1993, I was introduced to the miniature Jersey breed.  I instantly fell for these unique and personable little creatures.
  Over a 2-year period I traveled through 11 different states over 10, 000 miles searching for and acquiring as much information possible regarding this small breed of cattle.  In my travels I was able to purchase several head of little Jerseys from 4 different breeders.  With the purchase of these cows and a bull thus started the Dexter Corner breeding program.

I have been dedicated to the promotion and protection of this breed for  over 20 yrs now. Some of the people interested in this breed of small cattle are the small acreage farmer and back to nature type people wanting a family cow for milk, for cheese, butter, ice cream, cottage cheese and meat.  They are also ideal for the petting zoos.  Still today, the demand is much greater than the supply.
  Most of the cattle pictured on the first page of this site are all pure bred   Lessor Jersey's.  They are not cross bred animals!
  My breeding program is about breeding the best small Dairy type cow possible. With good feet and legs and a well attached udder.  I {DO NOT}  breed my cattle to see how small of an animal I can produce. Or Breed for just  A2A2.  I have learned over the years that a cow that is approx 40 to 42' tall is  much more desirable .  They also have  less calving problems at 2 years of age.

Some of my accomplishments thus far are:
1.   I introduced the miniature Jersey breed nationally and internationally.
2.   First breeder to have a web-site on the Internet informing interested parties of this unique breed.
3.   First breeder to have semen drawn and to offer it for sale nationally.
4.   I composed the breed traits and guidelines accepted by the I.M.C.B.S. for registration.
5 Been recognized for being the so called 
"God Father" of these unique little breed of Jerseys.

Now in his 40th year.

The Down sizing program is when you take a smaller framed Standard size Jersey cow
Breed her to a Mini Jersey either by A.I. or live coverage and down size the offspring.
Usually in a couple breedings you will have a real nice small framed family milk cow.
It does work. I have been helping interested breeders with this program for the past 11 years, Call me for more details.
