Geocache Description:


This cache, Beefies - The Charolais, is one of the breed caches in the Beefies series. Look under the top to find a letter and number (ex. A=1). You must find all six breed caches first to obtain the coordinates for the final Beefies - The Herd.


It used to be a common sight, when traveling the back roads of southern Wisconsin, to see beef cattle out grazing in a pasture. Now more and more beef farms are being replaced by houses, horses, and hops (well, ok, its really corn and soybeans), and the old barns stand empty. This series highlights six beef breeds you may still see as you're traveling about hunting caches.


The Charolais

Charolais are white or creamy white in color and are a larger framed, heavier breed of cattle. They are a Continental breed, originating in France, and first imported into the US in 1936. When developing the breed the breeders selected their cattle for size and muscling, stressing rapid growth in addition to cattle that would ultimately reach a large size. They wanted cattle that not only grew out well but could be depended upon for draft power. Little attention was paid to refinement or to the meat's tenderness or flavor.

This is located on public hunting land. Please hunt this cache after 2:00 pm during Pheasant season (Oct. 20 - Dec. 31, 2007), and its always safest to wear blaze orange.
Many thanks to Maureen Rowe, Badfish Creek Wildlife Area land manager, for giving permission to place this cache.


To get the coordinates for the final you must first find the six breed caches. Underneath the top will be letter and its corresponding number.

The caches in this series are:

The caches in this series vary in terrain and difficulty, but all caches are .50 cal ammo cans. This wildlife area has some low, swampy areas, so you may want to bring along an extra pair of socks and shoes, just in case you step in the wrong spot.
