  • CCA Scholarship Art Auction – support the Charolais youth, through art!

Ron Kletzel was involved with Charolais from a very early age. His grandfather purchased the first purebred bull that Rudiger Charolais sold in the fall of 1960 and his family imported Charolais in the first French importation.
After a lengthy and successful career in the livestock industry, Ron is now retired and living in Edmonton. He was an art dealer for many years and is now graciously donating his remaining prints to different organizations that he can help out.

Tickets for “Russell Paints a Masterpiece” by Andy Thomas will be auctioned at the sale with the proceeds going to the CCA Scholarship Fund.

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.
