The Charmoise is increasing in popularity across the UK, particularly in hilly areas where the breed excels due to its ability to thrive on poor quality forage and hardiness in comparison to many other terminal sire breeds. 

Charmoise have;

High Libido: Fewer empty ewes, more lambs per acre.

High Fertility Rams: Excellent conception rate.

Long Living Rams: More kilos of lambs per pound spent on rams.

Narrow Heads: Easy lambing. Very suitable for tupping ewe lambs.

Lively Lambs: Quicker to the teat producing healthier lambs.

Great Converters of Forage: Making them suitable for both intensive and extensive systems.

Lambs Finish Quickly: Producing standard and heavier carcasses without excess fat.

Tremendous Conformation: They have a high killing out percentage.

Fine Bone Structure: Produces a high meat to bone ratio.

Tastier Succulent Meat: The mountain origins of this breed produces a unique flavor.
