Introducing New Generation Limousin. Since entering the United States in the late sixties the Limousin breed has evolved into what we believe to be the complete beef animal. In the early days it was known as the continental breed that combined low birth weights with explosive growth and muscle, adding hybrid vigor to cowherds of various breed compositions.
As with any new product there were traits that needed improvement. Limousin breeders in co-operation with the North American Limousin Foundation held breed symposiums to identify and address these traits. Once identified, EPDs were established and targeted to allow greater selection pressure to improve docility, milking ability and reproductive efficiency while maintaining the muscle, growth and feeding efficiency that have made the breed popular. If you have not looked at Limousin lately, we invite you to consider the new generation of Limousin, and Lim-Flex hybrids — you’ll be glad you did.
