About Us

Kenmere Charolais was established in the early 1970’s with original French bloodlines imported via New Zealand to Australia. This provided a genetically sound base from which we could increase numbers and quality traits that were associated with Charolais.

In 1998 John Collins changed the focus of the stud and in 2004 Matthew and Ann-Marie Collins purchased all the cattle and began the work of rebuilding the stud to the original standards set by John Collins in its inception.
