• Average Beef Value of recorded sale bulls is LM+34
  • All sale bulls from herds within CHeCS approved Herd Health schemes

A quality entry of 193 bulls are catalogued to sell at the British Limousin Cattle Society’s Autumn 2013 Sale to be held at Carlisle’s Borderway Mart this Saturday, 19th October.   As ever, the bulls represent a breadth and depth of proven bloodlines backed by high quality performance records and health information.

In this last year, Limousin has again topped the BCMS tables, establishing itself for the 17th year in a row as the most popular choice of terminal and maternal sire.  Producing breeding stock that meet targets under all types of system is at the very heart of Limousin breeders’ focus and the entry at this sale is top quality representation of this.

Of the bulls entered at Carlisle, over 80% are performance recorded and, in what is believed to be an all-time high, the average Beef Value (representing growth and carcase qualities combined) is LM34, this placing them in the Top 10% of the breed.  98% of all animals have Beef Values above the breed average;   buyers really are being treated to the best!

In addition to this vast depth of performance information, all entries are from herds that are member of a CHeCs-approved Health Scheme (full details on herd status are printed in the catalogues) and all bulls are subject to a pre-sale veterinary inspection that examines locomotion, testicles, teeth, eyes and docility.  All bulls are also sold under the National Beef Association’s breeding warranty which offers a further level of surety and confidence to buyers.

Limousin cattle are easy-calving, easily-reared that go on to slaughter at an early age, hitting target carcase and fat grades.  Limousin suckler cows prove their worth time and again; easy calving, calving regularly, cheap to keep, long-lived with a high cull-cow value at the end of their breeding life.  Investing in Limousin now is future-proofing your enterprise, as herd performance and returns come increasingly under the spotlight.

This catalogue offers you healthy, fit, high quality bulls that will deliver performance where you need it most.  If there is anything around the sale we can help with, please get in touch.  We look forward to seeing you there.  Catalogues are available and can be viewed here  or can be purchased from H&H at Borderway Mart.
