Courser Meadows offers calves for sale each year and occasionally has mature cattle available. All cattle are sold halter and lead trained, weaned, and up to date on vaccines and health testing if old enough. Bred animals will be confirmed by either BioPRYN or palpation by vet. Email us if you have questions or are trying to decide if mini/small breed cattle are for you.
All of our calves and bred heifers/cows that were for sale during 2022 have been sold.
We currently do not ship our cattle beyond New England. Any animal(s) bought would need to be picked up by you on our farm or we can usually transport ourselves within New England for a fee.
Miniature Heifers - Both Sold (Oct. 2019)
Peach is a Red Brindle Miniature Irish Jersey (62.5% Mini Jersey,
37.5% Dexter) Heifer. DOB 02/18/19. A1/A2 and is Chondro/PHA
Negative. Carries Dun coloring. Her dam is "Daisy" on our website
and is a our favorite cow and a real nice little milk cow.
Both these heifers are out of our bull, Maple, who is an AI calf out of a very nice Mini Jersey sire, Jewell's Little General (http://www.southhousefarms.com/miniature-jersey-bulls-and-semen-sales.html).
Both are trained to lead on halter and tie and are very friendly and have been handled daily since birth. They were both recently weaned and are ready to go to their new farm. Our entire herd tests negative for TB/Brucellosis/Johnes/BLV annually. Both of these calves would make great mini milk cows or brood cows for beef.

Bred Miniature Cow - SOLD (Sept. 2019)
Bred Miniature/Midsized Heifer - SOLD (Sept. 2019)
Nutmeg is a Red Brindle Irish Jersey (Dexter X Mini Jersey). DOB 12/05/17. She is TB/Brucellosis/BLV/Johnes Neg and Chondro/PHA Neg. She is trained to halter, lead, and tie and is a really sweet cow that is easy to work around. You can walk right up to her in the pasture and bring her in or brush her. She is confirmed bred to our adorable Mini Jersey bull (VERY small with great dairy genetics) for a February 2020 calf (Due date 02/26/20). Nutmeg would make a wonderful family cow once she calves. She would be perfect for a small farm that wants a very friendly cow to milk and raise either mini milkers or beef from. We are estimating she will mature to be midsized, at around 45 inches tall at the withers.

Her offspring would be good for either milk production or beef. She would make an excellent brood cow or homestead milk cow (She is currently dry, but produced 1.5 gallons/day on once a day milking).
