The primary function of the Canadian Limousin Association is to maintain the herd book of pedigree and performance information for Limousin breeders in Canada. As the breed has evolved and expanded, so has the need to upgrade procedures for collecting, submitting and processing animal information.
All CLA members are encouraged to collect performance data on a wide variety of measurable traits to aid in the genetic evaluation and to evaluate where their animals rank within their own herd and the breed.
The Elite Herd program was established in order to distinguish operations who have placed an emphasis on data collection and reporting to the Association. The Elite Herd list is published annually and highlights the operations who are at the forefront of data collection and reporting.
The Elite Dam program was developed to recognize Limousin females of merit that excel in a specific set of criteria that has been identified as important in a production setting. Elite females receive their designation at the end of each calendar year.
The Canadian Limousin Association is proud to be a partner in International Genetic Solutions (IGS) for our weekly genetic evaluation.
