2017 Hec Maynard Memorial Trophy of Excellence

This awards namesake, Ronald Francis Maynard (OAM) – known throughout his life as Hec – was a popular Central Queensland grazing and community identity who was instrumental in establishing the Charbray breed in Australia in the early 1970s. As the Charbray Society's founding president Hec's passion for the breed was instrumental in steering it to where we are today.

Hec and his wife Ruth established the renowned Greenfield's Charbray Stud at Jambin in the 1970s with Hec maintaining his passion for the breed until his untimely death in 2001. Under Hec's discerning eye, Greenfields evolved into a highly regarded stud operation. Hec served as foundation president of the Charbray Society (1977-79) followed by another term (1987-88). He also served as a Charbray Society council representative. In 2001, Hec was awarded a posthumous Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) in recognition for his longstanding community service.

At the 2013 inaugural presentation of this Trophy of Excellence Ruth said Hec would be proud to know that this award would perpetuate his vision and further promote the Charbray breed. The trophy is a bronze cast of one of Hec's old work hats, with part of its wooden base crafted from timber found on Greeenfields.

This Trophy of Excellence is awarded by way of nomination by a fellow member; finalists will be notified early September 2017 with the winner announced at the 2017 Meet and Greet on the 19th of September.
