CBV commenced in 1981 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 40 years Alf'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.
