The Charolais (French pronunciation: ​[ʃaʁɔlɛ]) is a breed of taurine beef cattle from the Charolais area surrounding Charolles, in Burgundy, in eastern France. Charolais are raised for meat; they may be crossed with other breeds, including Angus and Hereford cattle.


Outside France

The breed was introduced to the southern United States from Mexico in 1934. In 1965 it was introduced in the northern New England states from Canada.[1]
