Charollais Sheep

Charollais Sheep

 

The Charollais was developed in the same region of France as Charolais cattle. Beginning in 1977, the Charollais was further improved in the UK and was exported to Canada as embryos, in 1994. The primary purpose of the breed in Canada is as a terminal sire for prime slaughter lamb production. The lambs have an excellent carcass with a wide long loin and a high lean meat yield. Charollais rams are ideal for using on ewe lambs or smaller framed ewes. The smaller head and wedge shaped body produces lambs that are easily delivered and vigorous at birth. The ewes work well in a pasture based or confinement system, lamb easily and are good mothers. The fleece of the purebred is of medium quality.

 

Le Charollais a été développé dans la même région de la France que les bovins Charolais. Depuis 1977, le Charollais a été amélioré au Royaume-Uni et des embryons ont été exportés au Canada en 1994. Au Canada, les béliers Charollais sont utilisés en croisement terminal pour la production d'agneaux de marché. Les agneaux ont une longe large et longue et un haut rendement en viande maigre. Les béliers Charollais produisent de petits agneaux à la naissance, il est donc judicieux de les utiliser sur des agnelles ou des brebis à plus petit gabarit. La tête plus petite et la forme pointue du corps des agneaux facilitent l'agnelage. Les agneaux sont vigoureux à la naissance. Les brebis performeront bien dans un système sur pâturage ou en bâtiment. Elles ont des agnelages faciles et sont de bonnes mères. La qualité de leur toison en race pure est moyenne.
