Anyone have any experience with this breed? Just curious more than anything. I've not found much on them in the US.

Thanks Karin. I've read that and a bunch more on the web. I was looking for some breeders that might have websites I could check out. They apparantly aren't very popular here.

I went searching for information on this breed also as they were on a beef semen price list that I was sent. From what I've seen they look very much like the Limousin. Birth weight looks to be around 40kg (88lbs?)
These were the links that I visited:

Thanks to you too Jane. :D There's a couple of links there I missed. The US organization has either disbanded or at least given up their website as it is a dead end.

That contact info. is YEARS out of date. James Spawn owns an association management firm, and so he serves as Executive Director for most clients. I have worked there since 1992, and we handled the Parthenais association for a brief time in the 1990's. Sorry, don't recall the names of any breeders or where they moved the operation when they left. They had a complicated and stringent set of requirements for registration, I do remember that. Birth weights and weaning weights were required, possibly yearling weights, too, and DNA parent verification, before a registration certificate could be issued.

All those requirements may have helped them right out of business. :nod:
Thanks again.
