CHAROLAIS STEER WINS CALGARY! It was a smoke show this year at the richest steer show in Canada, UFA Steer Classic at the Calgary Stampede. Proudly owned and shown by Megan McLeod of Cochrane, AB, Cruise, the Charolais cross steer was slapped Grand Champion by judges Lee and Dawn Wilson, Bashaw, AB. The 1316lb Canadian steer is off a purebred Charolais cow and sired by Monopoly. Megan’s steer has been named Champion at nine shows since the fall of 2013 and brought in over $18,000 in cash and prizes. More details in the Calgary Stampede News Release.

Since our creation in 1959, the Canadian Charolais Association has served as one of Canada’s major beef breed associations. Based in Calgary, we continually strive to provide our members with up-to-date industry information.
The benefits of using Charolais cattle are obvious – cattlemen simply can’t deny their growth and carcass traits. Over the years, Charolais cattle have earned the reputation of producing cows who can handle a range of environmental conditions and bulls who increase the size and ruggedness of any herd. On the rail, Charolais genetics increase total red meat yield.
Whether you’re a producer looking for Charolais genetics, a member looking to further your involvement in the CCA, or an established breeder looking for producer news, we’re here to help. Contact us for more information on how you can get involved with the Canadian Charolais Association.
