Due to the pandemic, the 2020 World Charolais Congress in Australia, and the 2021 Charolais World Technical Conference in the Czech Republic, were cancelled. In response, Charolais Charbray International are holding a worldwide virtual show in 2021.
There are three divisions in the competition: Full French, Purebred and Charbray, with five age categories for both females and males in each division. The animals will be judged by three people in each division, encompassing nine judges from eight countries. Judges will use videos and performance data supplied by the exhibitors with entries closing the end of November.
“It is a great way for people to promote their animals and program worldwide, as an advertisement will be submitted with each farm entry, for the virtual show book,” says Candace By, secretary of Charolais Charbray International and chairperson of the virtual show committee.
The virtual show committee is represented by Australia, United States, France, Mexico and Canada (Craig Scott, Helge By). Complete information is available at charolaisinternational.com.
