First depicted on cave paintings, dating back 15 000 years. The Limousin breed can trace its origin back to the rugged hilly Limousin region of France's Mossif Central - noted for its acidic granitic soils, hot summer and severe winters. The Limousin herd book was established in France, back in 1886 and since then, the first significant exports in the 1960's. The breed is now found in over 70 countries across the globe, from as far as Finland, Cuba and South Africa, where the first animals were imported in 1974. Limousins are the largest cattle breeds in the UK, 3rd largest in the USA, 5th in Canada and 7th in Australia. The breed is prized for its adaptability, longevity & ability to efficiently produce top quality beef. Limousins are known as the carcass breed because "WE BREED MEAT"!
