Acquired: Bred animal myself
Posted Oct 18, 2017
My grandmother invested in a Charolais bull in 1956 to improve her Angus herd. She liked the bull so much that she kept breeding back to new Charolais bulls until she had an all Charolais herd, many generations later. These animals were hardy, produced calves for over 20 years (every year) and were very rarely sick. They stayed sound, they were smart, they were friendly and gentle, they were athletic, and they were easy to handle. They seemed to understand that we were there to care for and protect them. We loved that herd so, so much. When I have land again one day, it will be the European style Charolais I will use again for producing grassfed beef. Their milk is also very high quality (few people know that) .
