well, it excellent feeds it, and
regarding the cares that it can bring to the calf, the Salers is perfect. "

" I have smaller costs of production,
notably for the veterinary expenses. "
Jean Louis Hervagault,

" It is a race which is profitable with regard to the food because one can give to the cows quite low quality hay, and they adapt very well under these conditions. "

" The Salers is profitable
because the dairy production of a same cow allows at the same time an optimum milking
and fooding the calf without complement "
