SIRES



ELITE FEMALES


LIM-FLEX PROGRAM


 

Lim-Flex Program.

Limousin X Angus cattle combine the characteristics of two of Australia’s most popular breeds. When stabilised at between 25% to 75% the resulting Lim-Flex animal maintains the maternal and marbling characteristics of the Angus breed whilst maximising the yield and muscle synonymous to Limousin. This hybrid vigour has proven very successful to straight angus herds looking to add performance.

The Manali Lim-Flex Program consists of an Angus based female whose genetics are made up from breed leading Angus sires such as BR New Design 036, Gardens Prime Time, Te Mania Kelp and Scotch Cap. This base of females has been infused with breed leading Limousin genetics with only the elite females remaining in the herd. Selected bull calves are retained and sold displaying the increased yielding capabilities of the Limousin breed and maintaining the milking and softness traits typical of Angus cattle.

Cattle not meeting this criteria are short-fed at the feedlot located at Yarramac where they supply trade yearlings to the domestic market at both Scone and Camden.

 

Lim-Flex Program

At Coleman Limousin Bull Sale on 6th April, 2010 Manali Limousin purchased a half share and the Australian semen rights to Cole Windfall 144W. He is the first Lim-Flex bull semen to be imported into Australia. Jim and Peter discovered this outstanding bull calf when they visited Denver Stock Show in January 2010 and after viewing his extremely impressive EPD’s decided he was a serious herd sire that could inject any number of traits into our cattle herd in Australia. Traits such as marbling, EMA and weight for age are extremely impressive. We are expecting our first COLE WINDFALL 144W calves on the ground in July, 2011.
