Our Charolais

Chenu Charolais was founded in 2001 with the aim of producing terminal sires capable of turning off calves with the carcass attributes of today’s lifestyle and demands. We are located at Bridgewater in central Victoria where our sale and show cattle are held. Our main stud herd and commercial cattle are located at Baringhup West, about 50 km south. Our stud is always open to anyone who wants to have a look at prospective sires or for those seeking heifers or cows for their own stud or commercial operation.

  • Campaspe Downs Ziggy (P)

    If you find her name in any of our pedigrees then you know you are looking at a potential champion.

    Ziggy was a cow that provided some real gowth to her calves. She was a large framed super soft polled donor dam that was absolutely perfect in confirmation with a fantastic udder. She carried her weight effortlessly and tracked beautifully. Her accolades in the show ring included Supreme Champion Royal Melbourne Show 2007 which she went on to receive the reserve interbreed ribbon at the same show. She then went on to win Grand Champion Charolais cow at Dubbo Beef Spectacular in 2008. We unfortunately lost Ziggy to a kidney infection, but her progeny have breed so well for us, and others, with heifers winning at Melbourne, Adelaide and numerous local agricultural shows. If you find her name in any of our pedigrees then you know you are looking at a potential champion.

  • A Reference Sire - Chenu Ferrari F33

    Chenu Ferrari F33's calves inherit his substance, which produce top class bulls.

    A polled Viagra son that has bred beautifully for us. His calves have great shape and grow fast, making them ideal for vealer production. He has excellent confirmation and feet which his progeny retain in a moderate size package. His sons still have that bit of substance that we like to maintain in our bulls and they always stand out in the mob.
