Fellow Charolais Enthusiasts,

On behalf of the Ontario Charolais Association’s board of directors, I would like to invite you to the OCA Annual General Meeting to be held at the Best Western Plus, just off the 401, in Cobourg on March 2 nd at 2:00 pm. This is always a perfect opportunity to come together as an association, learn about what is going on in our breed, as well as offer some time for fellowship and fun.

During the business portion of the meeting you will have the opportunity to hear reports from the provincial directors about what is going on in the association as well as the opportunity to provide your input on areas you would like to see the association focus on moving forward.

Participants will then have the chance to do some networking with fellow breeders. We will be having an awards presentation and conclude the evening with a roast beef dinner and fun auction, held in conjunction with our friends from the Ontario Simmental Association.

The OCA welcomes reflection on the past year’s initiatives and looks forward to hearing suggestions to aid in planning the following years’ events. This is a great opportunity to come together as a membership while having some input on where our association is headed; all while celebrating the great breed that we are a part of!
