Miniature cattle are small-sized breeds of domesticated cattle that are kept as pets, for show, or for beef and dairy production on a smaller scale. They typically grow to a height of 36-48 inches and weigh between 600-900 pounds. Some common breeds of miniature cattle include Dexter, Highland, and Miniature Zebu. These breeds are known for their gentle and friendly dispositions, making them popular among small farmers and homesteaders. Miniature cattle require less land and resources compared to full-sized cattle, making them a more sustainable option for small-scale farming.
