Canadian Charolais Association Members:

The Saskatchewan Charolais Association is pleased to host the 2017 Canadian Charolais Association’s Annual General Meeting. 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, share in the fellowship of Charolais breeders from across Canada, and enjoy what the Land of the Living Skies has to offer!

To begin, we invite you to join us Friday, June 9, 2017 for a day of touring! We’ll tour equipment and cattle at Norheim Ranching, a feedlot and cow/calf visit at Buffalo Plains Livestock, and we’ll round the day off with a herd tour and steak dinner at Palmer Charolais.

The Annual Meeting will be held Saturday, June 10, 2017 at 1:30pm in the Saskatoon Inn and Conference Centre, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. We will discuss the business affairs of the Association, elect incoming Directors, and welcome Sandy Russel of Spring Creek Land & Cattle Consulting as she updates us on the market trends. Banquet and Social will follow the formal setting of the meeting, where we will then recognize and appreciate our long-standing members and award the powerhouse dams of our Canadian herd book. Everyone is invited and encouraged to participate!

To ensure we have enough seats on the bus and food on the table, please RSVP by June 1, 2017 with Dave Blechinger via email at or calling 306.882.4081

Forms Coming Soon:  Notice of Meeting, Director Elections, Proxy Form and the Proposed By-Law Changes.

If unable to attend, we urge you to complete the Proxy form and have it into the CCA Office prior to June 5, 2017 or send with a member that is attending the AGM to have them vote on your behalf.

See you in June!


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.
