Limousin recognizes top 20 active breeders
DENVER, CO – The North American Limousin Foundation (NALF) has compiled the statistics for its recently completed fiscal year and released its list of top 20 active breeders. Together, they registered more than 7,000 Limousin and Lim-Flex calves.
“These top 20 Limousin breeders represent a strong contingent of performance-minded breeders across the country,” said Bob Hough, Executive Vice President for NALF. “I commend the loyalty and commitment of these and all of our members for their dedication to make Limousin the perfect cross for British-based cowherds. Combined, they are the lifeblood and reason for our increased breed success.”
Research conducted by NALF and Colorado State University (CSU) indicates trustworthy pedigrees, performance data and genetic predictions add about $400 to the value of Limousin and Lim-Flex bulls sold at auction.
