FOLLOWING an initial announcement made in December 2012, the Northern Ireland Limousin Cattle Club, in conjunction with Linden Foods of Dungannon, have made available further details and entry forms for their Limousin Carcase Competition to be held at Linden Foods, Dungannon on Tuesday 5th March 2013.
NI Club Chairman Derek Frew comments: “This new competition is to highlight the quality of carcase achieved in beef cattle when using Limousin breeding. Limousins are renowned for their ability to consistently produce carcases that meet the demands of the market, leaving profit at every link in the chain.
“In the current farming climate it has become expensive to rear store cattle and to earn a profit, so within the commercial market there is a need to breed cattle that add plenty of weight. The Limousin-cross has without doubt good calf vigour, excellent growth and when using quality Limousin genetics can hit the top weights and grades need to make profit,” he adds.
