Breed characteristics

Limousin cattle were imported to Germany for the first time in 1975. Since then, they have been one of the most important beef breeds in Germany besides Charolais. The breed is suitable for both pure breeding and cross breeding with other breeds.

Color:

Limousin cattle are single-colored light to dark red. They have clear brightening around the eyes, muzzle, pastern as well as scrotum and udder respectively.

Polled status:

Among this breed the animals can have horns or are genetically polled.

Body:

The medium-sized animals have dry, correct feet and legs. Hooves are light and strong. Neck and chest of the animals are compact with sufficient depth and width. Rumps are slightly sloped and body is well-proportioned and symmetrical. Moreover, they have strong muscularity on all meat body parts.

Production traits:

Limousin cattle are characterized by good fertility, good calving ease with sufficient milk production and good maternal qualities. In addition, they are adaptable and, therefore, especially suitable for pasture grazing. Another plus of Limousin cattle is high fattening yield with very good feed intake capacity and, thus, remarkable carcase yield with good meat marbling.
