This ringing endorsement of the breed's bull performance comes from the results of the buyers' survey conducted by the British Limousin Cattle Society through October to December 2007.

Answering the last of twenty-eight wide ranging questions about the performance of the bulls and their progeny, ninety six percent of respondents confirmed that they would be buying another Limousin bull at future Society sales.

The extensive survey was conducted amongst the buyers of just under one thousand Limousin bulls sold at all society sales in 2004* and received an excellent response of 42 per cent. Questions on bull performance included: ability to work; calving ease, temperament of both bulls and their progeny; health issues; food conversion and growth rate; and performance of progeny. Buyers were also asked about their criteria for selecting and purchasing a bull and also how the progeny were subsequently marketed.
