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.
