KSU & Superior Livestock Research shows Charolais Advantage
This Kansas State University and Superior Livestock research shows that Charolais-sired steers outperformed all other breeds in dollars per hundredweight when sold at weaning. This, combined with heterosis advantages of increased weaning weight make Charolais bulls the logical choice to add pounds and profit for progressive cow/calf producers.

Under Robert Wells’ direction, the Sam Roberts Noble Foundation consults with many commercial cow-calf operations in the the Southern Plains states. As part of the Integrity Beef Alliance, cooperators participate in a comprehensive crossbreeding program using registered Charolais bulls on primarily an Angus based cow herd. They must also comply with a rigorous herd management protocol. Herds market their calves in a value-added market setting that has topped the market each year, providing marketing opportunity to producers of all sizes to capture the value of using Charolais in their beef operations.
