Charollais

We have recently started a Charollais stud with the first lambs hitting the ground in 2013.  Using Charollais Rams and semen and White Suffolk ewes we have begun our flock.  We intend to keep some White Suffolk genetics in our Charollais to provide a unique version of the breed that carries some of the desirable traits of the White Suffolk including some extra length and size. 

Charollais are the second most popular terminal sire in the UK and are very popular throughout Europe.  They are relatively new to Australia and with strict quarantine laws, they are fairly rare.  The breed exhibits excellent muscling through the hindquarters and loin and produce very high meat yields and dressing out percentage.  They are clean on the points and breach and have short tight wool that produces a lamb that stays sappy longer.

Lambs are born small, very fast growing and vigorous and and are leaders in the field of easy lambing, making them safe to join over all breeds at all ages.  Clients with fine wool merinos, maiden ewes, ewe lambs or are just sick or pulling lambs and losing ewes are having great success with the Charollais.  This along with their good temperament for handling.

Charollais rams are very fertile and hard working with a great libido. Lambs can be successfully marketed in the market place but are ideally sold over the hooks.
