Welcome to CBV
Please enjoy your visit, the cattle and the information that we share. We look forward to meeting you on line, or in person, to discuss your aims and achievements, as well as our management and genetic strategies.
CBV commenced in 1981 with Alf and Wendy Collins at “Belah Valley”, Marlborough.
The CBV core herd was selected out of a family partnership at "Wandilla", of purebred Brahman cattle with 25 years development.
Over the following 20 years Alf and Wendy’s focus was breeding adapted cattle to supply genetics that make a difference to margins in the commercial world. Simultaneously land improvement was an integral part of the whole business development.
Alf and Wendy Collins were the managers of CBV, along with the extensive help of their six children through the years. In 1998 CBV purchased "Kelso" at Marlbourough.
