[sha ro lA'] one of the most popular
cattle breeds in the United States
This is a very large, white
breed that originated in France. Commercial
cattle producers seek Charolais for crossbreeding
because of their great size, their heavy muscular
system, and the rapid growth of Charolais calves.
The first Charolais were brought to the United
States from Mexico in 1936. No other breed has
gained such widespread popularity in the United
States in so short a time.
