Why Limousin

  1. High value cuts

    A Limousin cross calf is expected to have about 9.5% more silverside, 9.5% more eye muscle area and 4% more retail beef yield, with a 3% increase in tenderness of the loin muscle and 5.5% more tender silverside.

     

  2. More in yield

    Crossbreeding with Limousin provides increased weight gain, improved feed efficiency and large increases in retail beef yield and tenderness without the need for Hormone Growth Promotants.

     

  3. No extra feed

    Crossbreeding provides gains of 4 to 6% in weight through hybrid vigour and within breed selection can achieve ongoing increases in weight gain. Increasing the rate of weight gain increases feed efficiency.
