Wattlebray Charbrays is owned and operated by Trevor and Lolita Ford and family, third generation breeders of Charbray cattle.
Chinchilla on the Western Downs is the home to Wattlebray Charbrays with “Lone Starr” situated 35km North East of Chinchilla the base of the bull breeding operation and breeders run at “Oakleigh” 65km North East of Chinchilla and leased properties in the same district.
2018 has been another busy year, you may have seen our show team competing at Jandowae, Wandoan, and Chinchilla shows or at Beef Week where we claimed Reserve Junior Champion Male and Female, first and third in the Sires Progeny Group and first in the Breeders Group which went on to remain in the top 10 Interbreed Breeders Groups.
Our emphasis is breeding consistent, predictable and functional Charbrays with strong milk, growth, fertility, structural and temperament traits.
Wattlebray females are expected to conceive in a maximum 12 week mating period with a calf at foot. Any female that is not pregnancy tested in calf or does not wean a calf is culled.
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 score 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.
