FALL 2014 CHAROLAIS EPD AVAILABLE > click here!
   
AICA 50K GENOMIC PROJECT > click here!
  The American-International Charolais Association has been building a research database of genotypes to predict GE-EPD and improve the accuracy of selection for younger Charolais bulls and females. The AICA Board of Directors appropriated funding for the first 1,000 genotypes. We have exceeded this recommended requirement of researchers.

Thank you to Charolais breeders and other collaborators in assisting AICA in exceeding this goal. Continuing research is ongoing between GeneSeek, Iowa State University, AGI and AICA to complete this project.
AMERICAN CHAROLAIS FOUNDATION
  The proposed entity, to be called the American Charolais Foundation, will allow members, supporters, or other interested parties to offer tax-free donations/gifts consistent with our constitution. Our commitment is to form this tool with structure similar to the Junior Foundation, but with wider scope. We ask each of you to join with us in donating in the next few weeks so that we can proceed quickly in the fall of 2014. Read the entire letter for more information.
   
REGISTRY SYSTEM IS LIVE!
 

AICA has a new on-line registration system. Your user name (breeder number) and password is the same as in the old system. Once you log in, you’ll see many familiar headings; the system works very much like the previous system. With this new programming, AICA will be able to address our members’ needs by enhancing the system with many new updates in the months ahead.
