Sweetland Super Six SalersRetirement Dispersal Plan for fall 2018 has been
nixed by Mother Nature
Sweetland Super Six Salers (Ken & Wendy Sweetland of Lundar, MB) had planned to hold a fall 2018 dispersal sale. Regrettably due to drought conditions across much of Canada, we have had to postpone our dispersal plans. We can still offer for sale by private treaty the following high performing, young Purebred Salers. All females are registered purebreds, all polled, reds and blacks in all groups.
Our females consist of young (age 2-5), fertile, very productive cows, and bred heifers as well as some outstanding 2018 born heifer calves. The females on offer will number about 100 total. (55 cows, 20 breds, 25 heifer calves) All bred animals will start calving mid Feruary, 2019. To preview some of our animals available, please visit our Videos page which depicts the herd in mid- August. ( note: videos soon to be updated, videos currently posted are from 2017)
Sales/ retention of herdsires will be dependent on herd needs determined next spring, but please do express an interest in any individual bull that would complement your breeding program. Bulls available may include our senior herdsires, junior herdsires and selected 2018 born bulls.
All animals are from A.I. breedings and/or highly selected pedigrees/ strong performance sires. All of our animals are B-mann free by test or parentage. All females boast above average EPDs for growth and performance, strong milk EPDs and average to above average for sc EPDs. 44 of Canada's top 50 females (by WW) carry our SLS prefix. We, along with our family, have developed this herd over the past 30 years, with strict attention to temperament, fertility, conformation and performance.
We are pleased that SLS genetics represent one of the highest productivity herds in Canada with reasonably high accuracy EPD's available on each individual animal, as we have participated in Whole Herd Recording from the outset.
You may view performance records on Sweetland bulls and females under the sire summary heading on the Salers website. www.salerscanada.com or individual animals on the animal lookup feature. Our herd letters are SLS. Calving (birth) years will be 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 for the cows, 2017 for the bred heifers. We have available up-to-date performance information on all animals (post National run by ABRI, January 2018.)
