Charolais Herd Sires Bred at Charnelle.
"To breed Charolais is good; to breed good Charolais is better; to breed better Charolais is an achievement! It is an endeavor which lasts a lifetime; which tests the resourcefulness, intelligence and judgement of a breeder. It is a labour that never ends , but never tires". MANUEL ELIZONDO 1922 - 2008. Note: Manuel was very instrumental in Charolais development in North America. (Charolais Banner Feb. 2009.)
