Charbray cattle came to the US. in the 1930's when Texan cattlemen brought in Charolais bulls from Mexico to use in their predominately Brahman herds. They found that the resultant progeny grew faster, weaned heavier and dressed better than their straight-bred cousins.

How can i make a charbray cow from a charolais cow?

That's real easy. Breed the Charolais cow to a Brahman bull and you'll get your F1 Charbray calf. Mind you, it's a 50-50 chance you'll get a heifer (which will "turn into" a cow once she has a calf) over a bull, so you may want to breed the dam until you get a heifer from her, if all she throws is bull calves. Either that or get more than one Charolais cow (preferably over 50) and breed them to the Brahman bull to get your Charbray cattle. Also, Charbrays are actually 5/8 Charolais and 3/8 Brahman, so you might have to breed the F1 offspring back to a Charolais bull to get a true Charbray cow...or bull.
