Do What Works:
More pounds, more money.


We are a non-profit breed organization working to serve its members in the areas of cattle promotion, breed improvement and continuous education of its breeder members and associates. The members of the Iowa Charolais Breeders Association are striving to produce the type of Bulls and Females that work in today’s and tomorrow’s markets.

Cattlemen, who use Charolais genetics, will realize some of the following:
  • Mothering ability
  • Opportunity to get to market faster
  • Natural heterosis to produce more pounds
  • Efficient utilization of feed
  • Yearly lower cost per pound of gain
If you are interested in any of these traits, contact anyone of our members.
We will be happy to help get you in the MONEY!
