Charollais are fast growing with a high quality carcass. Charollais are very prolific, ewes mated in February – March can achieve 180 – 200% lambing. The Charollais has white downs wool and is well adapted to Australian conditions.
Using Charollais rams will give you the ultimate flexibility of income streams. The Charollais is a great terminal sire, so all lambs can be sold as prime lambs. However, as the Charollais is the most prolific prime lamb sire, ewe lambs can be held back and sold as Charollais first cross ewes. They will have more lambs with abetter carcass than Border Leicester first cross ewes.
Charollais have an impressive carcass. They have a high portion of primal cuts and intramuscular fat for great eating without too much subcutaneous fat.
