Last year’s special sales provided more than 60 commercial Limousin producers in six states with about a dozen opportunities to market more than 5,200 total head of Limousin-influenced feeder calves.
The North American Limousin Foundation (www.nalf.org), headquartered in Centennial, Colo., provides programs and services – including genetic evaluation of 5,000 active sires – to more than 4,000 members and their commercial customers. The Limousin breed and its Lim-Flex® hybrid lead the beef industry in muscle-growth efficiency and ideally complement British breeds.
