The Charolais breed in the spotlight
Tuesday is mainly dedicated to beef breeds, notably the National Charolais Breed competition.
For its National Competition, there are 60 animals recruited mainly from the birthplace of the breed, but Eastern France will be also represented. This breed will be showcased in the main ring starting at 1.00 pm.
due to its large population and genetic variability, the Charolais has 1,260,000 dams in France,
in all types of environments and on all types of farms. The Charolais is
able to withstand climatic phases involving food restrictions (such as drought) without major
impact on its production.
Alongside the competition, there will be a beef cattle auction dedicated to suckler multi-breeds.
