This year the Salers celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the promotion of the breed in Ireland with a present membership of over 100 breeders. Salers are better known and understood as a Suckler cow breed.
Introduced in New Zealand in 1987, Salers are taking their place as a unique European breed with a balance of traits ideal for cross breeding. Salers have proved adaptable to New Zealand conditions from Northland to Invercargill.
Salers bulls have been used over all the major British and Bos Indicus breeds in Australia with impressive results. Lines of uniform cattle have been produced which bring premiums in the saleyards or on the hook.
