2016 Hec Maynard Trophy Winners Bruce & Sue Mikkelsen, Wiluna Charbrays.

Congratulations Bruce & Sue, a well deserved win for your on-going pursuit of excellence,
dedication and service to the Charbray Breed.

The winning nomination that was submitted for consideration by fellow members.

Bruce is currently an active member of Council although his and Sues commitment to the breed dates back many years. They have embraced the objective of the Society which is to encourage the improvement, exhibition and sale of Charbray cattle.

Bruce's eagerness and dedication to help the Society has never been more evident than with the establishment of the 2016 Inaugural Charbray and Charbray Infused Prime and store Cattle Show & Sale of which Bruce was one of the main drivers.

Bruce quietly worked behind the scenes in insuring this event was successful including securing our hosts Brad & Donna McInally, Monto Cattle & Country, he canvassed participants, sort sponsors, provided sponsorship and cattle for the sale.

This sale not only proved to be a promotional win for Charbray cattle but also provided a financial boost for the Society and has been earmarked to be staged annually.

We feel this type of commitment embraces the pursuit of excellence, dedication and service to the Charbray Breed and Society and that Bruce & Sue would be deserving winners of the 2016 Hec Maynard Memorial Trophy of Excellence.

Mr. Chas & Mrs. Judy Nobbs, Cordelia Charbrays
Congratulations Chas & Judy, a well deserved win for your on-going pursuit of excellence, dedication and service to the Charbray Breed.
Below is Chas & Judys winning nomination that was submitted for consideration by fellow members.

2015 Hec Maynard Trophy Winners Chas & Judy Nobbs of Cordelia Charbrays.

Chas and Judy Nobbs would be worthy winners of the Hec Maynard Trophy. Their name has been associated with quality Charbray cattle for decades. They breed both quality stud and commercial animals, which are keenly sort after. They are quiet achievers of our breed that are very dedicated to the Charbray cause. Chas and Judy are very humble people that have a passion and vision for our breed that we could all learn from. The success that they accomplished at Beef 2015 commercial cattle championships was exceptional. The Nobbs family won champion pen of grass-fed females, reserve champion pen of grass-fed females and champion pen of grass-fed steers. Also at Biloela show they received champion steer, champion pen of steers, champion pen of females, champion and reserve champion single female. They also claimed champion female carcase at the Callide Dawson valley carcase competition. With these results and the promotion that Charbray cattle receive from this I believe that Chas and Judy should be thanked for their contribution by receiving the Hec Maynard Trophy.

2014 Nominee's

The following members have been recognised as 2014 nominee's of the Hec Maynard Memorial Trophy of Excellence for their pursuit of excellence, dedication and service to the Charbray Breed and Society.

Mrs. Jill Olman (Life Member), Namlo Charbrays
Mr. Gary Johncock, Colinta Charbrays
Mr. Kerod Lindley, Spring-Villa Charbrays

Announcing the recipient of the 2014 Hec Maynard Memorial Trophy of Excellence

Mr Kerod Lindley, Spring-Villa Charbrays

Kerods dedication and service combined with his passion and vision for our breed and the Society without doubt show's he is a very deserving recipient. Congratulations Kerod! Below is Kerods winning nomination that was submitted for consideration by fellow members.

Kerod is currently an active member of Council although his association with the breed dates back many years. This includes previous terms on Council. During this time Kerod has promoted the breed and the Society both commercially and to its member base. The struggle to keep the Society office and herd book not just going but growing has been at the fore front of his intentions. Proof of this is his willingness to dip into his own pocket for breed promotion as well as genetics.

Kerods generosity includes the building and funding of a Billboard in consultation with Council, then going the extra step to set up a fund to help establish more of this promotion. This fund includes offering members access to his genetics for donations back to Society for this cause. He has also being the driving force behind the Society's steer project, making several personal donations over the years for the betterment of the Society.

Kerods eagerness and dedication to help the Society has never been more evident than at Beef Expo's. He was hands on in bringing together the Societies commitment to support the school teams judging at this major tri-annual event. His efforts in setting up the Societies site and manning it are certainly noticeable.

The Charbray breed is finally moving ahead under the vision of this award's figurehead, Mr Hec Maynard. The effort and passion that Kerod exerts in this area proves he certainly shares that vision and is very deserving of this award.
