I think I remember watching her REAL close, when we were branding at Tumbleweeds. I sold him a couple calves, of this breed, and they were REAL good momma's, as I recall.
By the way, hios sister can take some great pictures. she is very talented. And married to a real nice guy, who fly's airplanes. he's the one who taught me to appreciate dark beer. He claimed if you learned to drink it and aquired a taste for it, the kids wouldn't take it out of the fridge!
My kids all like dark beer now!

This is an interesting Saler disucssion. I have raised Salers for several years but the damage done to the breed early on is the reason I am sliding out of the breed and more into Red Angus. They are good cattle that do a good job raising calves , marble and muscle well. There is the ocassional stupid one but I don't find them to be any worse (especially the last 5 or 10 years ) than any other . Mine are gentle. Perception is something you need on your side . Marketing against the grain is too expensive . Here is a pic of a couple of mine. The bull is a fullblood. 2700lbs frame 7 at turnout. The cow to his left is a heifer that had a 56# bw and 580lb ww calf this year . Not bad for her maiden voyage.Jinglebob wrote:But they sure raised good calves!
