13,000 Limousin Cows Now on Whole-Herd Reporting

US - More than 13,000 cows in 126 herds now are part of the voluntary Limousin Inventory Management System (LIMS). Thirty-two herds joined the North American Limousin Foundation’s (NALF’s) whole-herd reporting program in fiscal year (FY) 2006–2007, adding about 2,600 head.

Beginning with calves born in 2006, active NALF members have had the option of conducting business using the Web-based LIMS. Participants pay an annual, per cow fee that entitles them to record, register and transfer the cow’s calf for that year.

The system helps NALF members lower their costs of doing business with their association. Meanwhile, they contribute more complete and comprehensive production information that leads to inventory-proven genetics backed by more accurate expected progeny differences (EPDs).

Active NALF members can enroll in LIMS by first accessing their secured, members-only portions of the NALF Web site (www.nalf.org/members). Once logged in to their own member sites, they simply click the LIMS button at the top of any page to begin the sign-up process.

Limousin breeders wanting to enroll spring-calving cows in LIMS must do so by Feb. 15 each year. July 15 is the annual deadline for enrolling fall-calving cows.

NALF members associated with the new LIMS herds for 2006–2007 follow by state and hometown.
