Pineywoods Cattle – The Dedeaux Line

The Dedeaux cattle are somewhat similar to Broadus cattle, with moderate horn and blocky body conformation. The cattle are mostly red, with a few brindle cattle as well. Dedeaux and Broadus cattle ranged close to Hickman cattle, but had very little to no mixing with that line. They remain a different body type and horn type. The present Dedeaux herd is greatly reduced from that of the past.

In the original herd there were many guineas, which are a proportionate dwarf type valued for easy fattening.
