About Charollais SheepAbout Charollais Sheep



Charollais Sheep are a medium to large sized sheep. They arernlong and well-muscled with thick, deep gigots. The body is long with a well-muscledrnbroad loin and wide deep chest. The head is free from wool, pinkish/grey in colorrnsometimes with spots. The line of the shoulders should retain a wedge shapernwhich is so important for ease of lambing. The legs are clean, quite short, coloredrnbut never very dark. The front legs should not be set too wide apart and animalrnmust be well balanced. The gigots are well developed, thick and deep. The breedrnis primarily a terminal sire and the fleshing quality is of the highestrnimportance. Excessive bone is undesirable in the breed; the fineness of bonerncontributes to the high killing out percentage achieved by the breed. Thernfleece is white, fine and dense, the staple length quite short. Average maturernewe weighs 80-100kg, rams 100-150kg.
