Charolais- Aggressive, trouble calving.

I have been working with Charolais cattle for the past three years, and they are, by far, my least favorite breed with which to work. In my experience, Charolais cows are more aggressive than other breeds, especially when they have a calf on. I have seen our Charolais cattle charge people far more frequently than any other breed. Having said that Charolais cattle generally throw very nice calves and very rarely have any calving problems in my experience. If you are looking for a cow that will throw good calves that have high gains and you do not care about the temperament of your cattle, a Charolais may very well be the breed for you.
