Yorkshire Charollais Flock Competition

Latest news from Foulrice Charollais is that we have enjoyed success in the Yorkshire area flock competition as follows:-
  • Large flock ewes 1st prize
  • Large flock ewe lambs 1st prize
  • Stock ram with progeny on the ground 1st prize  -  Wernfawr Jim, XEV 9061
  • Home bred ram lamb - 1st prize - Foulrice Lightening 11DG01588 - this is our top March born ram lamb being born & reared as a twin off a ewe lamb. At 22 weeks he weighed 73kgs & scanned with a 34.7mm eye muscle, coming in with an index of 355, putting him in the top 10%. He has a certain amount of style & a really good tight skin, consequently we have used him & he has served 25 ewe lambs.

All of this culminated in us being awarded Champion Flock with which we are highly delighted.
