Welcome to Wattlebray Charbrays situated NE of Chinchilla on the Western Downs, owned and operated by Trevor and Lolita Ford and family who are third generation breeders of Charbray cattle.

Well what an enormous 12 months it`s been, 2nd top price with Wattlebray Prime Mover (P) $28 000 at last year’s National Charbray Sale and then topping the Charbray section of the February All Breeds Sale for the third consecutive year.

The show season began with local shows Jandowae and Wandoan so we were fully ready for Beef 21 with our team of 11 head who won 11 ribbons including Calf Champion Male, Reserve Calf Champion Female and Reserve Senior Champion Female. Wattlebray Pin Up stole the show taking out Senior & Grand Champion Male before placing in the top 4 of the Interbreed. Another couple awards we`re very pleased to win is the Exhibitor & Sires Progeny Groups for the second consecutive Beef Week, these results are testament to the predictability & consistency our brand has to offer. Such a great week to benchmark our herd, showcase the breed and catch up with many friends and clients.

While we have enjoyed recent success at the National Sales and in the show ring it hasn’t happened overnight nor by chance. It all started in the early 70’s with Stan Ford`s “Wattlebra” Charolais Stud and then progressed to Eric & Joan Ford commencing the “EJ Charbrays” prefix in 1977.

Full proven pedigrees and constant selection criteria over these generations using Charbray sires is the reason our C5 & C6 sires will deliver you predictability and consistency every time.

Our emphasis is breeding predictable, consistent and functional Certified Charbrays. Breeding fertile bulls from fertile females through our “calf or carcass policy” and maintaining an efficient productive cow herd is our philosophy for success.

In herd performance recording, scan data, semen testing, J Bas 7 and vaccination with 3 Germ Blood, 3 Day Sickness, 5 in 1 and Botulism is our commitment to insure your sire delivers outstanding results.

 Genetic gain equates to financial gain… Make It Count… With Predictable and Consistent Genetics… Invest in a Wattlebray sire today.

Bulls are offered annually at the National Charbray Bull & Female Sale conducted at CQLX Gracemere in September each year, as well as privately on property.
