Individual testing

10 PROGENY TESTING We are the only ones to do it! No bull is distributed unless his progeny has been tested on station. With the on-station testing, the environmental effects are controlled. What is measured is the real genetic potential of our sires.

25 daughters per bull are tested on station for their maternal qualities

Hundreds of sons are tested on farm for their beef abilities

(Calving ease, fertility, milk)

(Growth, conformation, muscular development, fat)

Further to these results, only the best 5-6 bulls are chosen to become AI bulls


...for crossing on Angus COMBINE ALL THE ADVANTAGES! Benefit from the exceptional qualities of the French Limousin breed : > Moderately-sized calves which give very good calving ease

And you still keep the advantages of maternal qualities : >H  igh marbling level >1  00% polled animals

> Early-developing strong muscular and skeletal development > Excellent conformation > Very high carcass yield

Homogenous polled groups, with exce

llent conformation...

The perfect recipe to attract

> The highest feed efficiency of all the high production breeds
