The Fieldstone Charollais flock is a closed flock that has been free of OPP and B.Ovis confirmed yearly by blood testing as required for ram sales and breeding stock exportation protocols. Biosecurity measures are in place to limit the introduction of disease. All new sire bloodlines are introduced to the flock by artificial insemination.
Charollais lambs are recognized by feedlot operators as quality feeders. Lambs have superior carcass traits and gain weight rapidly. FieldStone is a grass management system with grain supplemented diets only fed to ramlambs during the breeding season. Nevertheless exceptional growth rates of lambs are obtained on pasture and ewes easily maintain condition for breeding in a condensed timeframe.
The purpose of the Charollais is to be crossed on to females of various breeds to produce exceptionally high quality lambs for the butcher's trade. Charollais lambs are typically long, lean and tight skinned with good muscle development especially in the loin and gigot areas.
