         Miniature Zebu Cattle

Miniature Zebu cattle are the world's smallest breed of miniature cattle and one of the oldest, dating back to 6000 BC.  They are native to India, Africa, and Southeast Asia. The name "Zebu" is derived from the Tibetan word "ceba", which means "hump". Zebu cattle have a hump on their back, even when they are born, and a moderate dewlap and ears that point straight out from the head.

They are true Miniatures meaning they were not bred down but are naturally small. At maturity, Zebus measure 29 to 42 inches at the withers and weigh between 200 and 600 pounds.  Zebus are perfect for families with children! Many families want to own cattle but are intimidated by the size of many breeds. Zebus offer a great opportunity for young children to care for and train an animal while giving them a sense of accomplishment.

They come in a variety of colors, including shades of white, gray, black, red and various patterns of painted, speckled, and brindled.  Gray is the most common. They are slower to mature with a life span of 20 to 25 years. Zebu like to be on pasture with grass, are easy to care for, and do not require high protein supplements. They are great for small land owners as they can thrive on smaller acreage. They have excellent heat resistance and tolerate hot climates as well as cold climates. They are more resistant than other breeds to internal and external parasites. Zebu cows generally deliver without complications and are great mothers.

Information about our program

We have Zebu cattle from phenomenal lines. We typically only breed about twenty brood cows each year so that we have time to handle and imprint each calf. As we limit our breedings, that means a limited amount of calves available for sale. As mentioned, our primary goal is to breed for great conformation, beautiful color, excellent temperament, and a loving disposition.

As a responsible breeder, we love to help you out with starting or growing your farm by offering advice and support. We stay in touch long after the sale and often see repeat customers. 

Thank you for visiting our site and feel free to contact us.

Sunnyfield Farm's Miniature Zebu Bulls

~We love our three "boys" and believe they are the best guys on the East Coast. We couldn't ask for three better bulls!~

      

Sunnyfield's Dynamite, aka Baxter, is double-registered Miniature Zebu Bull  who was born and raised here on Sunnyfield Farm. Baxter was one of our bottle raised calves in 2010, and in return he is just a love bug!! He has such a wonderful personality, horn set, topline, and carries himself well. His sire is a Permanent Grand Champion Senior Show Bull and his dam is HCK Rubyana (pictured below). He is about 35" tall.

 

 

PFK Lil Devil, aka Conrad, is a 2011 Miniature Zebu Bull who measures a mere 30.5 inches. Conrad is double-registered and foundation pure. He has produced some exceptional progeny that truly exhibit what the Zebu breed represents. For his small statue, Conrad does not sacrifice hump quality or proportion. We have retained several of his heifers who will be great assets to our herd.

Sunnyfield's Lil Constellation, aka "Oreo", is a 2016 Zebu Bull calf. We believe he is the first full belted AMZA Foundation Zebu calf. He was sired by our previous black and white bull "Bobby Twist".
