      THE LIMOUSINE BREED
      Originating from a region with a harsh climate and a poor granite
      soil, acquired in its birthplace this breed a certain hardiness that
      selection has retained to this day.

      A BALANCED BREED

      The Limousine breed of cattle has at one and the same
      time excellent beefing abilities and very good maternal
      qualities.

      Limousine animals had exceptional beefing characteristics: beef
      with a fine grain, good muscular development, excellent
      killing-out rate in meat that is readily marketable.
      The Limousine breed also has the ideal profile of the easy to
      manage suckler cow.
      Its calving ease and its fertility give it excellent technical
      and economic productivity: 93 calves weaned for 100 cows
      presented for mating. The Limousine has the best index for
      weight of weaned calf per kilo of maintained cow.

      So the Limousine herd requires less supervision and allows one
      man working on his own to manage a larger herd: meaning a
      higher income and a better quality of life.

                                  SERSIA FRANCE Embryos :
                                         You can progress genetically more quickly
                                                    and more cheaply!

                          Every day numerous farmers have access to the top of the range of Limousine genetics
                                                  by using SERSIA France embryos.


                                         Why not you ?
           It’s simple, fast and much more advantageous than buying a young animal
      of the same genetic value.
           Our embryos come from dams with confirmed potential, very often
      prize-winners in competitions and whose male progeny are regularly
      selected at the breed station.
          The fame of their pedigree and the value of their own
      proofs make them cows of the first rank.
           The sires of the embryos that we offer you
      are all tested on progeny and selected
      from among the best bulls in the
      breed.
