He looks pretty good, he is relatively strong in the normal limousin weaknesses. He should work for you.

I was looking at that too. Because Limo's have a lot of junk in the trunk it's pretty deceptive. I dismissed it in the first pic because of the mud but then the second one still suggests it... Otherwise I think he is nice.

Very nice bull. Looks like a meat wagon. As for all those concerned about breeds turned black, here's one that actually has some original breed character. Gonna make you some good calves.

Hmmmmmmm.....select, dont think so he is crossing this bull with cattle that have above average marbling, hence he will most likely get a calf to sell that will marble and have good yield grade...........besides in Europe they are not quite so hung up on color. All in all a good looking bull that should preform well .

Depending on the genetics of the females, you COULD have some very consistent progeny - perhaps too large for optimum profit, but wait and see.

Europe is a different world when it comes to marbling. Marbling brings no premiums and if there is a little bit of fat some where, they discount prices.

it's pretty hard to grade a carcass at weaning in a sale barn.
