CD&J MINI RANCH - SAN BENITO, TEXAS - MINIATURE CATTLE
CD&J MINI RANCH - SAN BENITO, TEXAS -
 MINIATURE CATTLE  


Our Texas Miniature Cattle came from Northern Iowa, Oklahoma and Central Texas.  We are producing a beautiful cow from several desirable smaller breeds, which include a tiny part of Miniature Longhorn, Florida Crackers, Miniature Herford and Zebu.  Most of my smaller breeds are decedents of the Corriente cattle.  I find the Corriente cattle especially interesting because they descended from Spanish cows brought to the United States in the late 15th century.  They are small cattle and were bred for their meat, which is naturally lower in fat and cholesterol than the meat from most modern beef cattle. Corriente fit the vision of the Homestead rancher in that they are highly productive, inexpensive to care for, and resourceful foragers. 
SidMy  cattle are hardy, efficient and a rainbow of colors, from tri-colors to brindled, speckles to spots.  They also produce beautiful roans in whites, reds and blacks.  These cattle are about 1/4th the size of their standard counterparts, giving birth without assistance or hurting themselves or the calves.  The calves weigh about 17 pounds at birth. These cattle are as easy to care for - summer or winter. The bulls are muscular and the cows are elegant and graceful, they are not large cows on short legs.  So you put all these cattle breeds and attributes together and move them to TEXAS and the TEXAS  Miniature Cattle breed is what you get.
