opportunity for offspring when
those genetics are combined with
British breeds like Angus.
“We quickly embraced the idea
of creating the Limousin-Angus
hybrid that is trademarked as
the Lim-Flex hybrid! Combining
these two breeds of cattle complement
each other in so many
ways that produce the most efficient
and productively oriented
commercial females within the
industry,” says Lawrence. “The
Limousin Lim-Flex calves are
some of the highest yielding cattle
and using the right genetic
package can grade Choice or better.
It is not uncommon for our
ranch to ultrasound bulls that
adjust a 16” ribeye with less than
0.45 fat thickness and still have a
high 4 or higher IMF.”
COLOR: Golden-red, black, may be
polled or horned
ANCESTRY AND HISTORY: Limousin
cattle are native to the south-central
regions of France in Limousin and Marche.
It is suggested that they were the models
for cave drawings on the walls in Lascaux
Cave near Montignac, France done an
estimated 20,000 years ago. The harsh
climate, rugged terrain, and rocky soil
forced the cattle to evolve into unusually
sturdy, hardy, and adaptable. They were
known for their ability as work animals
as well as their beef qualities, becoming
known in France as “the butcher’s
animal.” The Limousin Herd Book was
established in France in 1886. The first
Limousin imported to North America was
the bull Prince Pompadour in 1968, to
Canada for the exhibition. Limousin semen
was available in the United States in 1969
and the first imported bull was Kansas
Colonel, in 1971.
