Dogpatch Acres is centrally located in the province near Leroy, Saskatchewan. We are a mixed farm consisting of over 80 purebred Charolais cattle and grain. Presently the farm stretches over 5300 acres of grainland, pasture and hayland. The farm is owned and operated by Michael and Annette Zentner, son Evan and daughter Carley.
We got our start in the Charolais business in 1993 when we bought our first group of bred females from John Perrot (Perrot-Martin Charolais) at Naicam. We added to the herd by purchasing a herd from John Pratchler(Silvertone Charolais) at Muenster later that year. Our herd is continually building off our own replacement heifers and by carefully selecting only the top females out of various dispersals and purebred sales across the prairies.
Over the years we have shown cattle at Saskatoon Fall Fair, Agribition and the Red Bonanza in Red Deer, as well as consigning to the Sterling sale in Saskatoon, the Red Bonanza sale and the Agribition sale.
We are pleased to be a part of the Annual Best of the Breeds Bull Sale held the last Sunday in March at Heartland Livestock in Yorkton. We have consigned our bulls to this great sale for the past 9 years, and are proud to serve our many new and repeat customers.
Besides farming Annette keeps busy as the principal at the Leroy School (K-12). Up until April 2012, Michael has worked on contract for the provincial Agriculture Board and Sask. Crop Insurance implementing many new agriculture programs.
