The South Dakota and Minnesota Limousin associations will host the weeklong, family-oriented event, which will include membership meetings, social activities, cattle shows, showmanship competitions and a variety of satellite educational events.

NALJA and its NJLSC aim to develop knowledgeable, motivated beef industry leaders while promoting the Limousin breed through fellowship, leadership and education.
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.
