RED Charolais - Bulls With The Commercial Man In Mind!
Growing up in North America on commercial cow herds, we have all seen many changes in the last 30 years. From straight British cow herds, we witnessed first the benefits of hybrid vigor from crossing two breeds. Then with the influence of the European Beef Breeds, we became used to the term TERMINAL CROSS.
After experimenting with almost all of the new breeds we kept coming back to Charolais for the obvious reasons - weaning weights, feedlot demand, calving ease as well as acceptability at the packing plant. The job North American Charolais Breeders have done with their cattle over the last 40 years is beyond compare.
I feel the need for bulls that will leave even colored, easy fleshing, easy calving, thick haired offspring in the commercial cowherd is increasing and will increase as the commercial cow herd becomes darker and darker.
