The Limousin originates from the West of the Massif Central between Central and South-West France, which is known as a rainy region with a harsh climate and due to its poor granite soil not suited to arable or horticultural growing, so has become a livestock farming region.
Due to the Limousin’s natural environment, the breed has evolved as highly adaptable, sturdy and with good health, Limousin was originally considered as work animals as well as for their high-quality beef, but as times have changed and the breed is now considered a highly specialist beef breed.
The Limousin is now considered the leading beef breed in Britain. It was introduced to the UK in 1971 for its potential in the suckler beef herd and as a crossing sire over dairy cows, at this time the dairy herd was producing 60% of the nation’s beef.
The breed is a hardy outdoor breed of cattle that offered major improvements in beef production with its fantastic killing out percentage, easy calving and its versatility to suit any market place producing suckled calves, stores, finishing animals and dairy cross calves.
They are hugely popular for their superior ability to produce fine-grained beef that is early maturing providing a very profitable beef enterprise, its commercial viability is proved by the Limousin’s ability to generate a significant profit margin.
