Default Red Dexter Bull

This is a bit of a long shot I guess, but I am based near Oxford UK, and am looking for someone with a Red Dexter bull to introduce some new blood into my embryonic suckler herd. I have two cows and a heifer ready and in a perfect world would like them to run sometime from May 2012.

I am looking on the UK Dexter Society site too, but any other pointers would be great.

Would AI be a viable option?

I agree with Rhodie. You're better off going the AI route rather than finding a bull that will do nothing more than be a eating machine for most of the year he's not being used to breed your females. You can get some really good sires for less than a quarter of the price you would pay for a live bull just by purchasing some straws of semen.
