The Limousin Society of South Africa’s objectives are as follows:

Promote fertility and reproduction in the breed. Fertility is the first priority as it accounts for 60% of herd performance. The minimum standards are thus as follows:

●  Age First Calf < 39 months
●  Inter-Calving Period > 640 days
●  Days last Calf < 640 days
●  Scrotal Circumference > 34cm @ 24months or 600kg
(Jan 2008)

●  Ensure all registered breeders participate in performance testing to allow for the genetic improvement of the Limousin. Our EBV
     goals are as follows:

●  Use Breedplan more effectively

●  Market the Limousin in South Africa through:
            -  Involvement of major role-players in the beef industry
            -  Competing in carcase competitions
            -  Competing in the Interbreed ring
            -  Advertisements with a clear marketing message
            -  Informative internet site

●  Continually make the necessary changes to our constitution to align with our objectives.

●  Promote knowledge through regular educational courses and training.

●  Promote unity and enthusiasm for the breed through effective communication between breeders and the Society

●  Ensure that all animals meet the requirements of the Limousin Standards of Excellence through regular herd visits and inspections.

●  Fulfill all the requirements of the Animal Improvement Act of 1998.

●  Continually revamp and update our internet site
