The Charollais makes wool but is included here because it is a heavy sheep with a long loin and well muscled hindquarters.
They originated in the 1800s from a cross with British Leicester and local landrace breeds.
The Charollais is medium sized with clean head. The wool is fine to medium and dense.
The Charollais is used primarily as a terminal sire to increase the muscle and growth rate of lambs.
They are the second most popular terminal sire in the UK.
Distribution is Europe, United Kingdom and North America.
