Mini Cow, as the name suggests, are very small cows and stand up to 42″. They are exactly what they sound like; they are just regular cows but small in size. Their small size is due to their breeding methods; in this process, the breeding of cows takes place in a compact size. Therefore, as a result, these cows take a lot less space and eat and drink a lot more than a regular-sized cow. One of the essential reasons these cows are brought into existence is their affectionate and friendly nature, making them great pets. So, if you are planning to buy mini cows for sale, it is a great idea.
Apart from being an adorable pet, these cows are also useful in the production of milk and fertilizers for your farm or garden. Moreover, after dogs, these animals are used in petting zoos and as animal therapies in different places, thanks to their social nature and their friendliness. Apart from this, mini cows also do well in a 4-H club.
However, before you buy mini cows for sale, it is essential to know a thing or two about them. The very first thing you should know is that there are different categories of mini cows. Based on the height they measure till their hip, they are differentiated into three primary categories:
-Midsize miniature cows: Their size range between 42 to 48 inches to the hip.
-Standard miniature cows: Their size range between 36 to 42 inches to the hip.
-Micro-mini cows: Their size range between less than 36 inches at the hip.
So when you buy, consider your preferences and then make your bid.
At Falster Farm, we have male calves that are not selected for breeding stock as we have a stringent selection process, thus making our breeding stock the most sought after worldwide. These remaining calves are neutered and sold as Pet Mini Cows. The full vita of each Pet cow is available, just like the registered stock. These calves can be halter broke and friendly and are considered excellent for therapeutic value.

Miniature cattle are herd animals that enjoy social stimulation. They are usually kept with other cattle, usually the same size, to avoid injury from fighting. However, they can also be kept with other species for promoting a healthy environment.
If you are wondering what a diet of a mini Hereford cattle should be, it is the same as a full size bovine but at a reduced volume. This implies that these cows consume fresh pasture or hay for nourishment and access to freshwater all the time. Generally, miniature cattle tend to consume two to four percent of their body weight and food every day. A Texas A&M research project of the 1970’s found that 2 mini Hereford cattle will consume 15% less inputs than a Standard cow, but produce 20% more beef. So if you are planning to buy miniature cows for sale near me, you should be prepared for lower input cost from diet as well as equipment costs.
