Limousin Cattle have the ability to bring significant productivity gains to your herd.
Limousin cattle adapt to diverse climates and the widest range of management systems, from the top end of the Northern Territory to the highlands of Central Tasmania.
Limousin calves have low birth weights, which lead to minimum calving problems when Limousin bulls are used over cows of other breeds.
Limousin crossbred steers and heifers have high dressing percentages of 58 - 63 percent compared to an average of 53 - 58 percent.
High meat to bone ratios and low fat leads to outstanding yields of saleable meat from Limousin cross carcases. Yields of up to 80% of saleable meat are not uncommon.
Limousin meat is finely textured, tender and low in saturated fats and cholesterol. It is genetically trimmed.
Limousin cattle are efficient - they have moderate mature size and are excellent foragers walking long distances for food. They also have above average feed conversion rates.
The Limousin stamps its characteristics on other breeds when used in crossbreeding programs, especially its superior carcase characteristics.
