    It's a proven fact from Montana state university they have the biggest pelvic area of any breed of cattle thus making them the easiest calving breed

    I strongly suggest you do. My father has raised herefords, Angus, beefmasters, shorthorn, some gelbvieh, some balancers, and we have found that Salers are the best cattle weve ever raised. I am confident they will cross well with any breed.

    They are the highest marbling continental breed according to marca (meat animal research center). They've won numerous carcass competitions.

    The bull pictured is polled and is purebred salers. Nearly all salers in Canada and the us are now polled. The only places I know of where they are still horned is france and the UK and maybe Australia. All of our bulls have all been homozygous black bulls just like Angus are. uploadfromtaptalk1449693944120.jpg of course you can get red one to. The calves are long and slender with long legs and small triangular shaped heads. I call em baby giraffes lol!

    If you google search the Canadian salers association they will send y'all free information.

    Out of nearly 300 calves born on our farm over the last ten years we have assisted two heifers once they figuered out they needed to push for the baby to come out it came right on out so we initially started to pull to get them pushing so to speak. The next year they calved on their own!

    Good lookin char crosses. The 50% or higher salers crosses can also be registered if you so chose with the salers association. They are called optimizers.
