Charbrays were represented by five of their leading Certified Breeders who made the trek north to showcase 20 Charbray Bulls.
Congratulations must go to the following studs for the time and effort they put into promoting quality bred Charbrays into the North. Their investment will pay dividends for all Certified Breeders as the reputation of performance, consistency and versatility of quality bred Charbrays by Certified Breeders gain momentum into our Northern areas.
Even though this inaugural event did not break any records, buyers attending were certainly taken aback by the quality of Charbrays presented and it was often repeated "there are Charbrays available in the North but certainly not to this standard".
