1 HIGH VALUE CUTS

A Limousin cross calf is expected to have about 9.5% more silverside, 9.5% more eye muscle area and 4% more retail beef yield, with a 3% increase in tenderness of the loin muscle and 5.5% more tender silverside.

2 MORE IN YIELD

Crossbreeding with Limousin provides increased weight gain, improved feed efficiency and large increases in retail beef yield and tenderness without the need for Hormone Growth Promotants.

3 NO EXTRA FEED

Crossbreeding provides gains of 4 to 6% in weight through hybrid vigour and within breed selection can achieve ongoing increases in weight gain. Increasing the rate of weight gain increases feed efficiency.

Using the CERTIFIED LIMOUSIN BEEF Ear Tags with the I AM LIMO logo provides an important tool in identifying and promoting Limousin infused cattle in the market place. ALBS members and their commercial clients who use the Ear Tags in sale cattle will greatly assist in promoting the breed and also Buyers and Agents that are looking for Limousin infused cattle.

We encourage all members to support this initiative and drive the program to get as many of the ear tags in Limousin infused cattle as possible. Please consider purchasing the Ear Tags to supply to your Bull buying clients so they can tag their calves before sale.

This is an important first step in initiating Certified Limousin Beef programs across multiple Supply Chains to generate improved recognition and identification of Limousin infused cattle.
