The Saler (sah-lehr) is an ancient breed, originally from the mountains of France. A distinctive mahogany color, this breed is hardy as an anvil, births easily and is one of the best calf milk-producers of any breed. They all thrive on almost any type of graze and will outlive most cows by several years. In short, Salers are a great homestead cow. They're rare however, so there is no auction market for them and you are on your own, pricewise.
