C J L A RE P ORT Submitted By Naomi Best The Canadian Junior Limousin Association (CJLA) board of directors met in Ontario on the weekend of January the 12th for their annual Board of Directors meeting. Seven out of ten board members participated in person or on the call where there was great discussion relating to the upcoming CJLA Impact Show. There was also discussion about a new CJLA logo as well as an online CJLA merchandise store. Angus Smyth, Kaitlyn Davey, Sam Kennedy, Connor Rodger, Jackie Wismer and Laura Ecklund also participated in the Ontario Commercial Cattle Tour. They toured a variety of feedlots, Smart Limousin and attended the Ontario Cattle Feeder’s Convention.

48 hours out follow the Morton tender quick instructions and brine for 24 hours. The only deviation is add in equal part of brown/ demerara sugar to mortons and add 1/2 portion spice below. 24 hours out rinse the skirt steak and pat dry. Rub heavily with homemade Montreal seasoning. Wrap in saran with extra seasoning. Refrigerate for 24hrs. Smoke at 80-105F for 3 hours. If available you can cold smoke for a longer period. Oak is one of the best flavours in my opinion but you can also use hickory or your preferred hardwood. Cooking options: Once it is smoked you can grill at 450F for 3-5 minutes per side depending on preference. Cut across the grain for best serving. or Slice like bacon and fry up some beef bacon! It is a much leaner option, and easy to make.

Always look ing for submissions to this sec tion. If you have something to contribute please for ward your old MLA pic tures to

Montreal style seasoning: 2 tablespoons paprika 2 tablespoons crushed black pepper 2 tablespoons kosher salt 1 tablespoon granulated garlic 1 tablespoon granulated onion 1 tablespoon crushed coriander 1 tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes For best results roast the black pepper and coriander seeds before grinding to release more flavour. You can make this in bigger batches just keep the ratios the same. Thats it!

Expected Progeny Differences (EPD’s) Expected progeny differences (EPDs) are important tools in making selection decisions for your herd. EPDs are run twice a year (Fall and Spring) in the National Cattle Evaluation (NCE) with interim calculations performed between runs. To learn more about the new base for Canadian Limousin EPDs please read the following info sheet: Understanding the Base for Canadian Limousin EPDs You can search individual animals on the Canadian Limousin Association Digital Beef site at to view their current EPDs and compare them against the current breed averages for specific traits depending on your breeding goals.
