2018 Heartland Commercial Heifer Sale

Limousin-influenced cattle consistently perform well in the pasture and on the plates consumers across our nation. Breeders that use Limousin-influenced cattle understand this statement, but for those that do not it is the goal of the Heartland Limousin Association a(HLA) and its members to spread this message. Therefore, in a partnership with both commercial breeders and Limousin seedstock producers, the HLA has established a commercial bred heifer sale featuring Limousin-influenced heifers bred to Limousin and Lim-Flex bulls or commercial heifers bred to Limousin and Lim-Flex bulls.
