The Semen Auction
The Semen Auction is a fundraiser ran by the Canadian Charolais Youth Association (CCYA), where semen from top bulls in the breed is generously donated from various breeders across the country. All funds directly support the youth. The semen donated is auctioned off at one of the fall sales, and all proceeds go towards programs of the National Board. Particularly, leadership scholarships are presented at the conference and show from funds raised through the Semen Auction, recognizing senior members on their contribution to the Charolais breed and their leadership among other Charolais youth members. The CCYA National Board would like to thank everyone who has donated and supported in the past for making our programs and scholarship opportunities possible for our youth.
The Leadership Scholarship is awarded annually, and awards $3000 to outstanding Charolais youth.
