The Ontario Charolais Association is pleased to host the 2018 Canadian Charolais Association’s Annual General Meeting in the picturesque area of Georgian Bay in Collingwood, Ontario. This is an annual opportunity to meet and greet with CCA Staff, Directors and Members alike. We encourage you to get involved with your Association and share in the fellowship of Charolais breeders from across Canada.

Friday morning there will be farm visits at Medonte Charolais and Echo Spring Charolais followed by an afternoon feedlot tour at Schaus Land & Cattle Co. Ltd. and finish the day with a farm visit at Sunrise Charolais for dinner and entertainment.

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.
