Why Charolais ?

We did not have a big team of fatstockers for Christmas 2007 due to a change in calving times of most of our small commercial herd from Autumn to Spring. However, two very young Charolais cross calves showed just why Charolais weights and pays for the commercial farmer....


Sire: Farleycopse Telemarque (Charolais) Dam: Dot (Piedmontese X)

Born: 1 January 2007

Sold fat on 26th November 2007 for £1.80/Kg (£873) at only 10 months old (329 days)

This equates to a gain in value of £2.65 per day through her life, for an estimated feed cost of £0.71 per day (margin over feed of £1.94 per day)



Sire: Farleycopse Telemarque (Charolais) Dam: Thorndon Trixie (Limousin)

Born: 22nd January 2007

Sold fat for £1.88/Kg (£940) at 10 months old, thus earning £3.05 for every day he was alive while eating, we calculate, and average of £0.77 per day in feed (margin over feed of £2.28 per day)


Can any commercial beef producer afford to ignore these figures?
