The Glen is the only exclusively Full French herd in New Zealand.
We had been using a Charolais bull since 1974, but decided to set up our own stud when we couldn’t source the type of Charolais we wanted. With the purchase of a bull “Brookfield Umpire” and an in-calf cow with a heifer at foot The Glen Charolais Stud was registered.
Full French is our preferred choice of Charolais because of better coat, hardiness, purer blood lines, temperament and bone structure. Our aim is to breed cross breeding bulls that will increase the profit margins to our clients.
Crossbreed into Profit with Charolais
Charolais beef sires provide production and profit through crossbreeding. Resulting cross ensures efficiency of feed for optimal beef production in any farm system.
