Home grown on family ranch which has been in Hereford business since 1936 and Reg Salers since 1980s. Our herd sires are from some of the best registered herds in the country including GG&T Cattle Co. Quinter, KS. We buy outstanding genetics to pass along to our customers.
These bulls could be registered but we stopped putting registration papers on them to save the expense and trouble of registering. Sire and dams of all these bulls are registered.
These bulls are out of our registered herd but we stopped registering our calves in 2021. No papers but registered genetics.

Salers bulls are known as being aggressive breeders, getting their cows bred regardless of the terrain or conditions thereby providing excellent conception rates. They sire calves that not only have a moderate birth weight, but also have an exceptional drive to nurse. These bulls will provide powerful maternal traits, a rapid growth factor, superior feedlot and carcass performance to any herd they are used on.
Salers females provide maternal traits that insure cattlemen optimum returns. The cows displays the exceptional maternal qualities of fertility, milking ability, calving ease, hardiness and longevity.
The Salers influence contributes a large, well developed pelvic area in replacement females and will allow today’s commercial cattlemen to utilize terminal sires in a crossbreeding situation with less concern about birth weight and calving difficulties.
The Salers solid color is also a popular trait with commercial cattle breeders as Salers produce uniform colored calves when crossed with other breeds. An excellent marketing tool!
Because of the diversity of terrain and climate within Canada, Salers have gained a reputation for their ability to adapt readily to almost any kind of management or environmental conditions.
Feedlot performance and carcass quality are the final measurement of a breed’s capabilities. Feedlots are learning that Salers sired cattle finish with performance equal to or better than other popular breeds for gain, feed conversion and cost of gain. In fact, feedlots are finding that Salers generate the highest returns.
Salers feeder cattle are known for their ability to produce lean carcasses at the required market weight with the desired marbling to ensure tenderness. A valuable commodity in a competitive market where quality is rewarded.
From American Salers Association
Salers cattle are now known to be native to the Auvergne region of south central France. This isolated, mountainous area noted for its rough, rocky terrain and harsh, damp climate is characterized by poor soil and a wide range of temperatures throughout the summer and long winter. As the topography allowed for little cereal grain production, the Salers cattle were forced to become foragers with bred-in range-ability to utilize, almost entirely, native grasses in summer and hay in winter.
Documented proof of the breed's attributes of calving ease, maternal efficiency and carcass merit, through recognized research institutions and universities, assure Salers a bright future and a viable role in beef cattle production. The "balanced breed" is meeting, and will continue to meet, the needs of the beef industry.
