Bull buyers can search for Limousin and Lim-Flex herd-sire prospects by directing their Web browsers to the North American Limousin Foundation home page at www.nalf.org and clicking the "Limousin Exchange: Bull Listing Service" link. Both private-treaty and public-auction sale offerings are included in the searchable database.
Limousin breeders list about 1,500 bulls on the service each year. They have listed more than 500 head already this year.
Users can identify a variety of criteria--including state, owner, sire, expected progeny differences, coat color, polled status, percent blood, sale date and type, and price--to obtain information about the bulls that fit their specifications. Also included in a bull's listing are his name, registration number, tattoo, birthdate, pedigree, ultrasound-scan data, owner contact information and additional comments. Users can sort the results according to any given trait.
Listing bulls for sale is extremely easy for NALF members via the secured, members-only portion of the NALF website (www.nalf.org/members). Once logged in, they simply click the "List Bulls for Sale" link, identify animals, answer a few questions, then click "Submit." The service is virtually free for sellers because NALF credits the nominal listing fees toward the bulls' eventual transfers.
The North American Limousin Foundation (www.nalf.org), headquartered in Centennial, Colo., provides programs and services--including genetic evaluation of 5,000 active sires--to more than 4,000 members and their commercial customers. The Limousin breed and its Lim-Flex hybrid lead the beef industry in muscle-growth efficiency and ideally complement British breeds.
