Welcome to the HEJ Charolais website, we raise and sell purebred and percentage Charolais cattle. For the last 13 years we have concentrated on building a quality Charolais herd, with an emphasis on colour. We've occasionally purchased purebred females, but most of the herd has been upgraded by the constant use of carefully chosen purebred bulls. For the last few years our cow herd has remained at 120. Our entire herd have always been on the Canadian Charolais Association's Herd Analysis and Records Management (CHARM) program, it has been a valuable management tool. Come in and look around. If you see something you like please drop us a line or come visit in person, the coffee is always on. The farm is located at Innisfail, Alberta, Canada, about 1 hour north of Calgary, just off of Highway #2. Rest assured, we have a bull, cow, or bred heifer to complement your purebred or commercial herd. Regardless of colour (yes, even BLACK)!

Females

We started our purebred herd with four females. The one that shows up the most in our pedigree now is a WDW BRONZE 604U dam. And from her a MAIN FRANCHISE 127Z dam, HEJ COCOA 25B. She has tremendous capacity; she is deep bodied, great spring of rib and good thickness, without giving up femininity, we retired her at 15 years of age and she was still milking strong with a well attached udder and nicely shaped teats, HEJ JILL-A-ROO 3B is from a red Australian bull ‘CHIEFTAIN”. She is quite similar in her make-up to COCOA but probably a frame size smaller. Her son’s are eye appealing and beefy, her daughters the same with perfect udders and great milking ability. We have developed a line of black purebred Charolais along with Char-maine Ranching. The black gene is the result of upgrading from a Black Angus cow we had purchased then bred with red factor Charolais bulls. Between the red and black Charolais we have learned much about colour genetics in the Charolais cattle.
