13 NALF members join LIMS in '08-'09

About 10,000 spring-calving and 2,500 fall-calving cows in 128 herds now are part of the Limousin Inventory Management System. Thirteen North American Limousin Foundation (NALF) members--some of whom have combined herds with other breeders--joined the whole-herd data-reporting system from Feb. 16, 2008, to Feb. 15, 2009.

Beginning with calves born in 2006, active NALF members have had the option of conducting business using the Web-based LIMS. Those choosing to do so pay an annual, per cow fee and, in turn, are entitled to record, register and transfer the cow's calf for that year.

LIMS helps NALF members lower their costs of doing business with their association. At the same time, they contribute more complete and comprehensive production information that leads to truer expected progeny differences.

Active NALF members enroll in LIMS by first accessing their secured, members-only portions of the NALF website (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 fall-calving cows in LIMS must do so by July 15. Enrollments for spring-calving cows are due Feb. 15. Members can find more LIMS information in the "Limousin Library" section of the NALF website (www.nalf.org) or request literature from the NALF office, 303-220-1693.

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.
