The Limousin breed originated in France and is believed to be as old as the European continent itself. Cave paintings discovered in the Lascaux Caves that are about 20 000 years old make us think of today's Limousins. Today this unique breed has very special meat characteristics and can make its mark with great success in any cattle farm. Small calves at birth due to the fine bone structure that is a characteristic of the breed, make that aspect of farming run smoothly.

The highest outcome percentage, some of the best meat returns and meat to bone ratio of all breeds in SA, make Limousins the natural choice for your weaning calf production as well as for the feedlot. Limousins are one of the biggest breeds today and Europe and proves that Limousin bulls can be used with ease on your cows. Limousins are found in all nine provinces of South Africa and are well adapted to its circumstances. Our membership in SA today total 86 breeders and approximately 11 000 registered animals with our society.

Limousins are known as the carcass breed because "WE BREED MEAT"!
