Charolais - Salers - Salers Optimizers

Here at Effertz Key Ranch we have been raising Charolais cattle since 1959, and breeding our Salers since 1983. We are always working on genetics that will make this business more profitable. We try to offer healthy, sound bulls that have been tested and measured to show the differences in their potential. Our Salers Optimizers will help you build an excellent, crossbred cowherd. Use our Charolais bulls on your crossbred cows as a terminal sire to boost heterosis. Broaden your genetic base and remain competitive with Effertz Key Ranch select Charolais and Salers/Optimizer bloodlines, designed for performance, profit, and the winning edge.
