he Heartland SOURCE presents an avenue of marketing for members and associates of the Heartland Limousin Association (HLA). It’s our intent to provide service to all areas of beef production through the use of Limousin genetics. This SOURCE gives breeders an opportunity to highlight their programs and production sales. In addition, we welcome those advertisers who service the Limousin breed through their various product lines. We encourage the membership and commercial producers to consider these programs and products with their Limousin genetics. Over the years, the HLA has endeavored to ensure the publication of the activities and accomplishments of our members. From production and consignment sales to the showcasing of Limousin cattle, the HLA spreads the news to all who are interested in Limousin cattle. In addition to covering sales and shows, the HLA also supports junior activities. Each year the Heartland Limousin Association sponsors a regional junior show held in June. We want to extend our best wishes to those juniors who participate in shows at the county, state, regional and national levels. We also congratulate those juniors who have finished their show career and have now embarked on a new phase of their life, whether it is post-secondary education or vocational school. Thank you for the opportunity to serve the people of the Heartland Limousin Association. Dean Summerbell, Executive Secretary 612/963-3799 e-mail: bjsummerbell@gmail.com

Like many folks, we have other pursuits outside of our cowherd. However, our one true passion is the cows. While we don’t have large numbers, we focus on the front-pasture kind where the quality runs deep. There’s nothing better than a cup of coffee and a good set of calves to walk through first thing in the morning. Come see them for yourself. The calves are out of leading sires: Aviator, Air Force One, WestWind and JDYE X-Factor
